    I always wonder this but I'd have a guess a few thousand at 18, five digits by 25 (say 10k-15k) and by 35 maybe 30k-45k mark if you're talking per person, not a couple or friends etc. Again, that is a complete guess, I could be talk rubbish

    I wouldn't hold your breath for a comprehensible response. James is one of our regulars who entertains us with his tales of great wealth which never stand up to scrutiny.

    Are there official figures for this, just out of interest?
    I imagine they'd be very dependent on, obviously, job, region and lifestyle - so even then an average would be far from representative.

    Always surprised by debt levels on every scale.
    In theory i (and even my pet goldfish) are worth more than the country if the bell was rung tomorrow to settle accounts

    edit - wasted 15 mins looking. There are not. Plenty of figures, but it seems that if you give 100 people a calculator, you get 100 different answers. Old Reliable, the Daily Mail, reckons the average Brit is worth £150k though...

    Yes, that seems reasonable.

    As I mentioned average person in the UK has net worth of 43k excluding home equity, and the average age is 40 years, so your figures are sensible.

    Not a bad guesstimate then haha, I am 19 (20 in a couple of weeks) so I am just on track, I do need to get a job soon though - not had a 'proper job' before (all of mine thus far have been small paid, couple hours work here and there)
