Abstract: Financial behaviour is one of the factors to financial literacy. However, many Malaysians were reported of having a poor financial behaviour which is proved by poor decision making in their financial matters. The improper financial behaviour practice might have a bad impact and one of the effects is bankruptcy. In this current study, we examine the relationship between financial attitude and financial goal towards financial behaviour. Thirty sets of questionnaire were distributed to employees in Melaka using convenience sampling. This study found that financial attitude is significant to financial behaviour.
