How Hong Kong measures up?

In the 2022 FinFit Study, people of Hong Kong recorded a slightly lower score on the HSBC FinFit Index than they did the previous year. This is likely due to the impact of the pandemic and the economic slowdown. Overall, though, they remain resilient, resourceful and quick to adapt to change.
