Financial education has never been more important in today's environment. Participating effectively in the financial system can improve the economic wellbeing of individuals and businesses. Financial education is therefore key so that members of our society will benefit from the financial system and from the new technologies that are transforming our financial landscape. It will help consumers to better understand the risks involved in managing their finances and will facilitate better financial decision making. Building a generation with financial competence therefore needs to start from an early age. This has been the motivation of Bank Negara Malaysia in the development of AKPK to be the agency in providing free financial education to adult consumers.
As part of the efforts to promote financial literacy and sound financial management by members of the public, AKPK has specially designed programmes targeted to all life stages starting from the young adults in tertiary education right up to the senior citizens in their retirement with the aim of empowering these groups to effectively manage their finances. This will in turn contribute towards promoting better protection for financial consumers and a more resilient household sector.
Our Financial Education modules are centred on an individual's life stages as indicated below:
Stage 1 - Tertiary
Stage 2 - Entering Workforce
Stage 3 - Starting & Raising Family
Stage 4 - Retirement
We provide free financial education to various organisations and higher learning institutes. (Please refer to our Online Booking System to book a session with us)
