Financial literacy project
Own your financial future: managing finances for the over 55s
Australian Shareholders’ Association (ASA) will be running a project funded by an ECSTRA grant to assist women 55+ to build confidence to participate in financial decision-making.
The goal of our financial literacy project, Own Your Financial Future, is to empower older women with an understanding of basic financial concepts (understanding your financial position). Another objective is to give older women the confidence to have conversations with their partners, children and financial advisers about how the finances are structured, including superannuation.
We completed the pilot project in Victoria in September 2018. Free for women over 55, we have workshops scheduled around Australia with confirmed locations listed below.
