They said this year would be when things start coming back to normal. But as we’ve experienced for ourselves, this wasn’t exactly the case. With the various challenges facing Malaysians, we want to know how you’re doing financially.
Since 2018, the RinggitPlus Malaysian Financial Literacy Survey (RMFLS) has helped highlight not only the poor financial literacy standards of the everyday Malaysian, but in recent times have also served as a marker of how the pandemic has affected our money habits. In the past, we’ve found concerning data on the amount of Malaysians simply do not plan for their retirement, or those who effectively live paycheck to paycheck.
Nevertheless, there are encouraging findings too, such as the increased awareness of having an emergency fund since the start of the pandemic.
This year, we want to know how you’re doing financially across the many areas of personal finance. Financial literacy awareness remains at the core, and with the assistance of our partners this year, you’ll find that we also have expanded a few sections that provides more data points for analysis.
Of course, this is where you, our dear readers, can play a helpful role. The survey analysis methods include filtering the responses in order to achieve a sample size that is statistically accurate to the Malaysian population (based on demographics, gender, age, etc). This means we need your help to complete the survey and share it around with your friends and family. Rest assured these responses are anonymous and do not contain personally identifiable information (PII).
Our previous survey results have not only been covered by news outlets, but also by governing bodies and academic research. Make no mistake, your responses does make a difference and may even shape the financial landscape of Malaysia in the future.
So take a few minutes to complete our survey when you are able to – just visit our RMFLS 2022 landing page to get started. We expect to release the results in a press conference in November. See you then!
