The Financial Consciousness Index report

Many Australians already know they’re not getting the best deal on their household products, but refuse to take action and save. What causes this decision paralysis?

Compare the Market engaged Deloitte Access Economics to investigate, and uncover what drives a person’s financial choices (or lack of). The result is the Financial Consciousness Index Dollars and Sense report.

What is the Financial Consciousness Index? A survey was fielded to 3,000 individuals to capture Australia wide results across the States and Territories, age, gender, income and employment status.

The research measured the extent to which a person is not just financially literate, but whether they are conscious of their ability to affect their own financial outcomes, all the way to their willingness to act, and the extent to which they are able to participate in sophisticated financial matters.

Compare the Market are committed to delivering this report in future to better understand customers’ financial behaviour and decisions and to help enable them to take tighter control of their everyday finances.
