In this report you will find: 

  • An analysis on the differences between women’s and men’s financial assets and debts with evidence broken down by age, income and ethnicity  
  • Evidence that women’s saving and, to a lesser extent, debt levels were more affected by the shocks of transitions such as becoming a parent or relationship breakdown and that the effects of these were much longer-lasting for women 
  • The details of some groups of women, such as lone mothers and divorcees,  who were particularly struggling to save or keep up with debt commitments
