Netwealth renews financial literacy sponsorship

Advice platform Netwealth has renewed its sponsorship deal with Banqer for the third year as part of efforts to improve financial literacy in schools.

Banqer brings financial education to life in primary schools across Australia and New Zealand through an online platform that gives children hands on experience with financial concepts such as saving, budgeting, credit, loans, superannuation, insurance, property and taxes.

As at April 2019, Netwealth said it has sponsored 8,279 Australian students across 160 schools to access independent financial education at no cost.

Netwealth joint managing director Matt Heine said it is important that it continues to support financial literacy initiatives.

“We all play a part in preparing young Australians for their financial futures and I’m pleased to report we’re well on our way to meeting our goal to sponsor 15,000 Australian students nationally,” Mr Heine said.

Banqer launched in New Zealand in 2015 before expanding to Australia earlier this year.
