Redefining the relationship between people and their money. Futureproof is a podcast, research and event series exploring the real problems, and everyday needs of people and their finances.
The relationship people have with money isn't a simple one. Technology provides us with solutions to problems, but there is a disconnect between the world’s financial systems and the millions of customers who use them. Futureproof combines insight and culture to understand how to make the money part of people's lives simpler.
Jamz Supernova, BBC 1Xtra DJ and presenter of ‘DIY Generation’, invites a series of guests from different walks of life to explore issues that cut across finance and culture. Inspired by six months of research across the whole of the UK uncovering the issues and needs amongst young adults seeking financial confidence.
A six-month study exploring the complicated relationship young adults have with their money. The report features data from over 2000 UK consumers and in-depth insights into how a generation of individuals, largely alienated by the financial industry, approaches the complexities of money.
