The survey showed that the number of people in their 60s who responded that they "Will NOT choose a financial product if its principal is not guaranteed" was lower than for surrounding age groups and the number of risk orientated replies - "Will choose a financial product, even without a guarantee of its principal, if there is a chance to get appropriate returns for the risks involved" - was not low for this group.
