Investigating Financial Literacy among Emiratis
MetadataShow full item record
Financial literacy is one of the key factors needed in making informed financial decisions. As businesses continue to be more profit driven, more financial and economic intrigues arise that continue to put individuals at the risk of spending more and more without considering the short term and long term effects. We con- ducted a study to assess financial literacy and financial decision mak- ing among Emiratis. Our results show that financial literacy is lack- ing among Emiratis. Also, almost half of respondents owe loans to other peoples and 1/5 of them have bank loans. We expect that the outcome of this research will be useful for designing educational programs and policies to promote financial planning and security among Emiratis.
