HK people more upbeat than others on financial prospects: survey

Hong Kong investors are generally more upbeat about their financial future compared to the global average, according to a survey from BlackRock Inc.

Fifty-eight percent of Hong Kong respondents felt positive about their financial prospects, against the global average of 56 percent, the survey showed.

Eighty-six percent of respondents in the city said they had started saving for their retirement, compared to the 65 percent globally who said they were doing so, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported.

BlackRock interviewed more than 31,000 people in 20 cities across the world for its survey on investment sentiment. The Hong Kong sample comprised 1,000 respondents.

Family-focused respondents comprised 53 percent of the interviewees in Hong Kong, with a large proportion being in the age of 35 to 50.
