SINGAPORE - Marriage can make you feel safer about your money, according to a survey.

The Investor Attitudes Report by Friends Provident International (FPI) showed that 45 per cent of married Singaporeans feel they are financially secure, compared with 37 per cent of single investors.

A thousand investors in Hong Kong and Singapore with at least $80,000 in investable assets were interviewed last month for the report released on Tuesday. About half of the respondents were located here.

The study also saw more investors here feeling financially insecure at 36 per cent of those surveyed, up from 19 per cent last year.
