General Public can now look forward to talks and workshops that will be conducted by the newly launched Institute for Financial Literacy launched by MoneySense and Singapore Polytechnic.
The Institute will offer free talks and workshops to help consumers develop capabilities to make financial decisions that directly affect them and their families.
The programmes will cover core financial capabilities such as 1) understanding money and having numeracy skills to be able to evaluate costs and benefits; 2) understanding yourself, your rights and responsibilities; 3) managing money to live within one’s means; 4) planning ahead; and 5) selecting financial products.
The Institute will partner community and grassroots organisations to reach out to consumers from lower income groups. The working adults can expect the convenience of the talks and workshops being conducted at their workplaces. E‑learning modules will be developed for the busy professional who prefer to learn online.
