A Manulife Bank Survey reveals that 48% of Canadians open bank accounts
and products as needed, without a strategy, losing an average of $1,000 a year through poor debt and short term asset management. Furthermore, of the 87% with a checking account, 96% also have a high interest savings account. While the average number of bank credit cards per respondent was just over 1, 93% of those also held department store or gas company cards. Of the 30% who said they have a mortgage, 45% also have a line of credit. The average Canadian has 8 different bank products across multiple bank accounts. For this reason, Manulife bank has introduced an ‘all-in-one’ account, which 40% said
they would consider opening to save money on fees and the like.
Nearly two-thirds of Canadian homeowners with household debt surveyed last
month say they have never consolidated what they owe, in contrast to a new
research study for Manulife Bank of Canada that confirms they could save
borrowing costs by combining their debts and short-term assets. More than
a third of those homeowners say they only make minimum payments on their
mortgages, credits cards and other loans, according
to the national poll conducted in late September. A typical Canadian
family, with a residential mortgage, loses an average of $1,000 per year
by not effectively managing their debts and short-term assets. Manulife
Financial is a leading Canadian-based financial services with Cdn$364
billion (US$297 billion) funds under management.
