Everyone getting ahead financially

The National Strategy is a framework for action to help increase the financial capability of New Zealanders. The vision outlined in this National Strategy is about equipping and enabling all New Zealanders to navigate through a lifetime’s worth of financial choices. Bringing about sustainable behaviour change can be a challenge. It’s resource-hungry and definitely not for the faint-hearted, but success is improved with collaboration.

  • Talk

    Money has traditionally been regarded as a taboo subject. We’d like to see that change.

  • Learn

    The National Strategy aims to equip New Zealanders to navigate their way through products, choices, demands and needs across a lifetime.

  • Plan

    It’s about knowing where you want to be, what success looks like, and making a plan to get there.

  • Debt - Smart

    Enabling New Zealanders to take control of their debt and make it work for them, not against them.

  • Save / Invest

    Getting people actively engaged with their personal finances and saving/investing in the short, medium and long term
