Financial literacy project

The Australian Shareholders’ Association (ASA) will be running a project funded by a Financial Literacy Australia grant to assist women 65+ to build confidence to participate in financial decision-making.

The goal of our financial Iiteracy project, Own Your Financial Future, is to empower older women with an understanding of basic investment and financial concepts knowledge. Another objective is to give older women the confidence to have conversations with their partners, children and financial advisers about how the investments and finances are structured.

To know whether you should be attending the workshops, please answer the following questions:
  1. Have you visited a financial adviser? Did you participate in the conversation?
  2. Do you know where the funding from your retirement is coming from?
  3. Are you comfortable with any of the following: Shares? Hybrids? Managed funds? Self-managed super fund?
  4. Have you attended any seminars, workshops, conferences on financial management and/or investment?

Look at your responses to the questions above. These workshops are geared towards women who have never been involved in managing their finances or investments.

If you have never attended an education event about managing finances or investments, or do not know where the funding for your retirement comes from, you will benefit from these workshops.
