One in Six Britons Have Secret Bank Account

Around 20 per cent of Brits have a bank account their partners don’t know about, according to a survey by the Post Office.

One in four secret savers claim the money is a safety net in case their relationship breaks down, while one in five said the money was none of their partner’s business.

The study found the average amount stashed away was 2,000 pounds, but one in 20 of those surveyed was hiding over 10,000 pounds.

Doug Strachan, director of financial services at the Post Office, said: ‘While people have secret savings accounts for many different reasons, it’s wise to be open and honest about money with loved ones to avoid strained relationships.’
