What does it mean to be in the Green?

Being in the Green is all about nurturing good money habits so you’re not just living payday-to-payday, but maximizing your full financial potential and reaching your goals.

We teamed up with the Centre for Economics and Business Research to take a look at the financial wellbeing of UK adults. There are now 9.1 million Brits in the Green, but we don’t think that’s enough.
