Parents

Global Money Week includes financial literacy and educational programmes that will reach out directly to you and your family. This will include resources for you to assist in educating your children.

We support, educate, train.

The MFAA supports the notion that financial literacy is a key social and educational issue in Australia. Our committed group of members are passionate about actively combatting this concern and promoting ongoing financial education.

We have a unique ability to coordinate the industry at all levels to support these types of issues through face-to-face hours spent in communities, both suburban and regional, offering education and training to diverse cultural groups.

“We have 12,000+ of the most financially literate people in Australia as our members who actively experience the short comings in financial education every day with consumers. Our networks of brokers covering all areas of the nation are committed to supporting this program in both metro and regional local communities.” - MFAA

WHAT PARENTS THINK

What to expect

Finance brokers are highly competent in financially literacy and therefore are ideally positioned to share their financial knowledge with the broader community, including children. MFAA members finance brokers and the best educated brokers in Australia.
During Global Money Week, finance brokers will be delivering interactive presentations to parents, children and school/community groups around Australia with the aim of developing a better understanding of everyday money matters. The MFAA has designed three programs tailored to different age groups. The content has been developed to ensure the information given is relevant to the different stages in a child’s life.
The session will be focused on developing conversations that improve children’s and family understanding about basic financial literacy including debt, credit, affordability and security.
The program has gone through a rigorous set of checks and legal compliance. There is no mention or selling of products, the focus is on basic financial literacy issues. As part of the seminars there are free resources such as online education games for children and a web portal, to assist parents and families continue their journey
We can help your child start the journey to a better chance at financial security with this opportunity.
