Savings and Financial Health

This meta-study examines existing evidence on savings in light of the emerging concept of financial health. It identifies findings from the savings literature that relate to the key elements used to define financial health and explores whether the findings indicate how savings contribute to financial health. It also identifies elements within the realms of financial health and savings that have been relatively well studied and other elements that remain underexplored.

This report aims to connect a deep body of knowledge on savings with the new conversations on financial health.
