ASIC's National Financial Literacy Strategy
A speech by Greg Medcraft, Chairman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Financial Capability Breakfast Briefing, Parliament House (Canberra, Australia), 16 February 2017
It is a pleasure to be here to talk to you today about the work being done to improve the financial capabilities of all Australians. I am confident that this area is important to your constituents as they tackle the daily challenges of managing and making the most of their money. There may even be things we talk about today that you can use personally.
Improving the financial capability of investors and consumers is a key piece of ASIC’s toolkit. It complements our regulatory activities by empowering investors and consumers to have greater confidence and to make good financial decisions.
