A new report by Lloys Bank has revealed that one in ten people do not tell their loved ones about all of their savings, while one in eight women admitted concealing money from their partner, compared with one in ten men.
Philip Robinson from Lloyds Bank said: ‘The number of couples keeping savings secret is on the rise with the UK’s hidden savings pot growing to just over £3billion.
The survey of 2,000 adults also found a marked contrast in how different generations approached their banking.
Younger couples were more likely to have independent accounts, with 82 per cent of under-25s saving separately – up from 80 per cent in 2013. This compares to just half of couples who are over 55.
