Know Thyself Financially: How Financial Self-Awareness Benefits Consumers

We consider the relation between an individual’s uncertainty about their own current financial assets, liabilities, and spending patterns (financial self-awareness), and downstream financial behaviors. The effect of FSA is mediated by financial self-efficacy. The effect of FSA on saving and investment decisions, but not on financial satisfaction or spending decisions, is moderated by financial literacy via response-efficacy.
