Communities rally behind Money Week

Posted to Money Week on 28-08-2015

Communities around New Zealand are throwing their weight behind Money Week 2015, putting on a range of diverse initiatives to help Kiwis get their finances fighting fit.

Financial adviser Tina Chen is catering to the Chinese community with her KiwiSaver in Mandarin seminar in Auckland. She says many people are unclear on the details of the scheme despite being enrolled; her seminar will take them back to basics. 

Enoughness’ is the name of an interactive seminar being offered by Upper Hutt Budget Advisory Service. The desire to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ can be a powerful influence, but the focus in this session will be evaluating your own goals and prioritising your spending to achieve your ‘enoughness’.

A bumper half-day of workshops in West Auckland, organised by VisionWest Budgeting Service, will cover three main subjects. Learn what you need to ‘know before you owe’ and beat debt traps; get your money fighting fit; and ask questions of an experienced family advocate – anything from housing issues to dealing with Work & Income.

Craigs Investment Partners is hosting a series of ‘Women’s Wealth’ events throughout Money Week around the country. These are informal forums aimed at beginners, covering key principles for building a portfolio for those starting their investment journey.    

In the education space, a new initiative will be launched during Money Week by Banqer – online financial education software that won BNZ Start-up Alley at Webstock earlier this year. September 1 will mark the unveiling of its latest feature – a module to teach students about insurance.
