First, the good news: according to new data, three quarters of Manitobans have savings and financial plans for their future. The bad news is that one quarter don’t, and that equates to a lot of Manitobans.
The survey, reports the Winnipeg Sun,  reveals that 28 per cent of the province’s adults “have no savings and no financial investments in their future.”
The national average is 31 per cent.
“What really concerns me are the numbers indicating Manitobans in their 30s, 40s, and 50s without a financial plan or adequate savings for retirement,” Don Murray, MSC chair and CAO, and CSA co-chair, is quoted saying.
More: Nearly half of those survey have less than $50,000 saved.
