What is the National Financial Literacy Strategy?

Annual highlights summary video

The National Financial Literacy Strategy is led by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). It provides a practical framework for action to guide and encourage all those with a role to play in improving financial literacy for Australians.

Improving financial literacy is a long-term behavioural change initiative. It requires a multi-faceted approach and sustained action over time to bring about gradual improvement. To find out more, see Financial Literacy Strategy.
