Slovaks are mainly influenced by family and friends when managing their money, an IMAS International survey carried out on behalf of Slovenska sporitelna bank has shown. According to the survey, which was conducted in September of this year, only 22 percent of Slovaks think they know best how to handle their own money. Almost half of the respondents listen to the advice of family and friends, and a third rely on banks. About half of the Slovaks in the survey said that they had a neutral attitude towards investments, while a quarter take a negative view. Three-quarters of the people who are willing to invest feel well informed about the risks involved in ploughing money into securities, shares and bonds.
