Financial literacy project
The Australian Shareholders’ Association (ASA) will be running a project funded by a ECSTRA (Financial Literacy Australia) 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 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.
We completed the pilot project in Victoria in September 2018. Free for women over 55 we have 35 workshops scheduled around Australia with confirmed locations listed below.
