Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to examine the influence of financial knowledge and financial socialisation on financial satisfaction of an individual with financial risk attitude as a mediator with special focus on tier II city of India. The authors have adapted scales from literature on financial knowledge, financial socialisation, financial risk attitude and financial satisfaction to create a questionnaire. The mediated regression analysis was performed to test hypothesised relationships. Significant positive relationships were found between financial knowledge and financial satisfaction with financial risk attitude as mediator. Similarly, the relationship between financial socialisation and financial satisfaction with financial risk attitude as mediator were also found to be significantly positive. Financial risk attitude is observed to bear a mediating affect between financial knowledge and financial satisfaction, as also between financial socialisation and financial satisfaction. This research is an attempt to develop a framework for financial satisfaction in a developing country, aimed at the most vulnerable economic class. It is based on data from India, and the results have been found to be significant.
