Can you see your future?Posted to Money Week on 17-08-2016
As Jerry Maguire once said: “Show me the money!”
That’s what Money Week 2016 is all about. This year it will run from 5-11 September with the theme 'Show Me The Money!' and we’ll be highlighting the surprising cost of everyday items over 30 years of retirement.
‘Show Me The Money Week’ is directly linked to the ‘Plan’ stream of the National Strategy for Financial Capability. It’s all about visualising the future and making a plan to get there – whether it’s having the right insurance, saving for a house deposit or preparing for retirement. It’s about making financial plans to support life goals.
During the week hundreds of money-related events and activities take place around the country, bringing organisations, schools, community groups and more together in the mission to build financial capability and help New Zealanders get ahead financially.
The Commission has an enabling and cheerleading role, providing brand assets, the digital platform (moneyweek.org.nz), marketing collateral and a range of free resources to participating organisations.
A number of Money Week events are already listed on moneyweek.org.nz. It’s free to register an event and you can add your own here – it’s an effective way to reach more people and highlight the great initiatives happening in the financial capability sector.
