  • At the other end of the scale 21% of Australians state they feel ‘financially free’
  • 69% of Australian radio listeners say they are very or quite satisfied with their main financial institution; while 6% say they are not very or not at all satisfied.
  • The majority of Australians aged 18+ (62%), says their main financial account is with one of the big four banks (CBA, ANZ, NAB, Westpac).
  • 11% of commercial radio listeners say they are very or quite likely to change their main financial institution in the next 6 months.
  • One-in-five (22%) commercial radio listeners list their investment/ savings priority for the next 2-3 years as ‘saving for a car or holiday’; while 18% are ‘paying off their home’; and 18% also ‘saving for retirement’.
