Financial planner Andy Cowan from Tilney told all about generational spending
How much money do you think you'll spend over the course of your lifetime? Well, a report has found that today's average 20 year old will spend a whopping 1.9 million pounds in total. Analysis from financial planner Tilney shows that we will have spent one million pounds by our fiftieth birthday, and will spend 400,000 pounds after we retire. It seems many of us, however, spend a lot more than we think we will after we've stopped working. To discuss the report in more detail, Share Radio reporter Sara Macham caught up with Andy Cowan from Tilney.
