High earners want joint accounts not pre-nups finds Lloyds TSB

04 January 2005
A survey of high earning couples by Lloyds TSB Premier Banking has found that most have joint accounts and do not want a "pre-nup" when they marry.

Despite high profile celebrity break-ups and an increase in divorce, wealthy couples seem to have a traditional attitude to money when married.

The survey of Lloyds TSB Premier Banking customers, who have a combined income of more than £80,000, found a traditional but practical approach to money.

Two in three use joint current accounts and just 15 per cent said they would consider asking for a pre-nuptial agreement.

"Rich Brits are abandoning financial coyness in favour of the convenience of shared finances such as joint accounts," said Mark Cheshire, director of Lloyds TSB Premier Banking.
