One in six people keep saved cash a secret from their partner according to Post Office survey

One in six Britons have a secret bank account with an average of £2000 of savings that they haven't informed their partner about, according to a poll carried out by the Post office. One in 20 of those surveyed admitted to hiding over £10,000, with men twice as likely to conceal their savings than women. Almost 20 per cent of participants said they were hiding the money in case their relationship with their partner didn't work out and 10 per cent said they hadn't disclosed their secret cash to prevent their other half from spending it. About 20 per cent said the money made them feel more independent.
