• Survey conducted on participants between the age group 19 – 30 years 

• 59% said they prefer investing in Mutual funds over cryptocurrencies 

Mumbai, January 12, 2022: An empirical study conducted by Dinero – India’s first habit-building neobank has revealed that 64% of Young Indians are unsure of what to trust when it comes to investing in financial instruments. The analysis based on responses provided by 500 participants indicated that 51% of them set aside a specific amount every month from their earnings, however, due to the absence of definite knowledge, complicated jargons, and overload of information they lack the trust to make a decision.

The nationwide study was aimed at understanding some of the major challenges Young Indians face when trying to save money, understand their personal finances, and set monetary goals for themselves. The results further revealed that 33% of respondents tend to save whatever amount they can without a set plan. It is also noted that 40% of people who save do it for an upcoming expenditure event that is short-term. 

Among those who set aside a portion for savings 45% of respondents said they were unable to keep a track of their expenses made through the many UPI apps and mostly rely on their bank statements to do so. The study further indicated that 35% find it difficult to find a financial instrument that is trustable with low-risk opportunities. 

Interestingly, however, 59% of the respondents said they would prefer sticking to Mutual Funds as an investment option rather than opting for cryptocurrencies. The results also said that irrespective of the growing digital adoption, Young Indians are habituated to seeking advice, guidance, and require the human touch when it comes to investing.  

The results further strengthen the continued apprehensions of young professionals seeking a way to attain control over their finances and make better financial decisions a resolution they aim to stick to within 2022. 

Dinero Founder & CEO, Kashyap Mahavadi said, “At Dinero, we are at the forefront of helping young professionals make better investment and saving habits.
