ATTITUDES 1 in 3 workers are not confident they will have enough money to retire comfortably. Number of years average Briton's life savings will last. Fewer than half of these have actually tried to calculate their retirement needs. HSBC CONDUCTED RESEARCH THAT FOUND: 19 Percentage of retirement saved for 56% 37% Average number of years a Briton lives for post-retirement. Global average: 56% UK average: 37% THIS MEANS THAT BRITAIN IS THE WORST IN THE WORLD AT SAVING FOR RETIREMENT. 3.
