I am pleased to inform you that the The National Financial Literacy Strategy Annual Highlights Report 2015-16 was launched recently by the Minister for Revenue and Financial Services, the Hon. Kelly O’Dwyer MP.
The National Financial Literacy Strategy (the Strategy) which is led by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) aims to improve the financial wellbeing of Australians by advancing their financial literacy. This is a long term behavioural change initiative which involves a wide range of programs and initiatives delivered by public, private and community organisations.
Defence, through ADF Consumer, has long been a strong supporter of the Strategy. The workplace financial education program that Defence offers to ADF members is one of the largest and best established programs of its kind. The Highlights Report briefly outlines some of our work in 2015-16 (pages 22 and 45) and other great work done by many others across the country to build the financial literacy and capability of all Australians.
I commend the Report to you.
Frank Lilley is Operations Manager of ADF Financial Services Consumer Centre
