New financial literacy website launched

New financial literacy website launched


The website for The Exchange launched today is a significant step in helping address financial literacy in the community.

The Exchange is a collaborative initiative that brings together government agencies, NGOs and the private sector to improve financial literacy in New Zealand.

Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell said, "The Exchange aims to match resource with need. It brings together organisations who have identified a need with those who can help, and who have the expertise, resources, and commitment to improve financial literacy amongst New Zealanders.

"This model allows members to play to their strengths and deliver resources in a very targeted way. The first half of 2014 saw us piloting and evaluating programmes. Now that we have a clearer understanding of what's working, we can grow the programmes, drawing on the financial services sector to bring scale and deliver a national footprint."

More information on the Exchange can be found at www.theexchange.org.nz.
