London Summit 2018 - 26th March 2018

  • Hugh said she sees consumers hugely overspending on insurance.
  • Ford said the psychology of saving is a hugely complex and difficult subject. The relationship between spending and saving and is being wrapped-up in “spending being the enemy of saving.” People also tend to say one thing and do another, he adds.
  • Savova, meanwhile, said one of the problems with ‘roundups’ – an increasingly popular method of saving for financial apps - is that it hard to save a meaningful amount and then when someone’s pot does become large people tend to withdraw it.
  • Scalable Capital’s CEO Miller adds that recent hype around cryptocurrencies won't cross over into the savings industries.
