What The Institute Does
The Institute provides free financial education programmes covering basic money management, financial planning and investment know-how. We are not tied to any financial institute and are not selling any financial products. We cater to consumers’ different learning preference in various modes as shown.
- Talks and workshops
Brought to work places (e.g. offices and factories) making it more convenient for working adults to learn more about money matters.
- Public talks and workshops
Conducted at public locations (e.g. libraries and community centres), making financial education easily accessible to consumers from all walks of life.
- E-learning modules
To cater to consumers who may prefer to learn online.
We deliver free financial education programmes to the public through workshops and talks at workplaces and public locations, such as our national libraries.
The trainers from the Institute will also conduct workshops and talks at companies and organisations at no cost.
The Institute’s programmes will be developed and customised to cater to working adults of different ages, life-stages and income levels.
