ANZ is working to improve financial education in New Zealand through our MoneyMinded programme.
MoneyMinded helps people build financial skills, knowledge and confidence. It aims to give participants some of the financial basics they may have missed out on learning elsewhere by encouraging them to live within their means, increase savings and assets, manage credit and debt, and plan for the future.
ANZ partners with Solomon Group, an Auckland-based private training establishment that provides education to the unemployed, migrants and the disadvantaged. Solomon Group delivers MoneyMinded within a larger educational programme concerned with building literacy, numeracy, life skills and personal confidence.
ANZ has helped nearly 300,000 people worldwide improve their financial skills through MoneyMinded. Here in New Zealand, around 700 students complete MoneyMinded every year and this number is growing.
Stories from our MoneyMinded New Zealand participants
In 2015, ANZ released our MoneyMinded Impact Report, based on an evaluation by the University of Auckland of 105 students who completed MoneyMinded through Solomon Group. The findings of the report are exciting because they show MoneyMinded is making a difference.
