Examining the Level of Financial Literacy among Saudi Investors and Its Impact on Financial Decisions
Financial literacy and information requires that a person knows and understands the forms, functions and use of money and financial services. In today's world financial literacy is important to every individual who wishes to select the best way to carry out payments and take care of banking issues. The current paper examines the impact of different demographic variables on the level of financial literacy among Saudi investors. Furthermore, the impact of financial literacy on different kinds of financial decision making is also investigated. The result of the current study confirms a significant impact from gender and age on financial literacy. Males are more financially literate than females, and older people also show a higher level of financial literacy compared with younger people. There is no significant impact from educational level and current work situation on financial literacy. Financial literacy is measured in reference to retirement planning and stock market participation. People with a higher level of financial literacy have a greater urge to engage in retirement planning and stock market participation. However, there is a negative relationship between financial literacy and the need for financial advice.
