Improving Financial Literacy for Everyday Australians
Building financial capabilities requires a long-term commitment to lay the foundations for behavioural change over time. We all confront significant financial decisions at key points in our lives, such as leaving school, undertaking study, entry to the workforce, purchasing property, having children, or reaching retirement.
To help people develop healthy financial habits and make better decisions about money, ASIC is implementing a National Strategy.
The five priorities in the National Strategy are:
Educate the next generation, particularly through the formal education system.
Increase the use of free, impartial information, tools and resources.
Provide quality guidance and support.
Strengthen coordination and effective partnerships
Improve research and evaluation.
ASIC’s Moneysmart website provides impartial and trusted financial guidance and tools for all Australians, including tailored content to support people at different life stages or in changing personal circumstances.
ASIC MoneySmart Teaching program builds the capability of teachers to deliver financial literacy in schools through professional development and resources aligned with the Australian Curriculum.
The program aims to grow financial capability in all young Australians to better prepare them to manage money day-to-day, plan for the future and make informed decisions around financial products and services.
