Industry insights from Kate Steere

We spoke to Kate about the latest trends in financial education and the housing market in the UK.

What challenges does the UK face when it comes to financial education?

The need for meaningful, practical financial education for children in the UK is clear. Schools are stretched, so it’s falling to parents to teach their children about money. However, as our research found, most parents have low confidence about key financial topics. Collectively we need to develop a programme that’s delivered effectively in schools, but also supported by parents, businesses and the third sector. And parents need reliable resources to enable them to teach money confidently at home.

Will the increasing base rate contribute to a house market crash in the UK?

Landlords may find it unprofitable to continue due to increasing interest rates and sell up, creating downward pressure on house prices and leaving renters with even fewer options.
