The Equal Exes and Cambridge Partners Financial Capability Programme aims to raise the financial well-being of its participants. This programme was created to address the financial struggles we saw people facing after marital breakups, the death of a spouse/partner, or people wanting to become more financially independent.
Sadly, financial literacy was not taught in schools when we were young. A recent study1 conducted by the Commission for Financial Capability (CFFC) reported that at the youngest age group studied, men and women start with the same score, but men increase their financial knowledge with age, but women do not catch up. We seek to bring a balance to this knowledge gap and raise awareness of how financial capability can be achieved.
Our online course is structured around the national framework created by CFFC and consists of four modules that can be completed at your own pace. It aims to equip people with the support, knowledge, and tools to help them on their journey towards financial capability.
We break it down into 4 key learning areas:
- Debt Smart
- Learning & Talking
- Saving & Investing
Understanding Your Money is a financial capability programme created by Cambridge Partners (NZ) Ltd for Equal Exes.
