Spring into Money Week

It’s a good time to spring clean your finances and get your money fighting fit says the New Zealand Bankers’ Association today as Money Week kicks off.

“Financial fitness is a lot like physical fitness. It’s easy to put off taking the first step. But once you do, you’ll really notice the benefits. Money Week is the perfect opportunity to take the first step to managing your money better,” says New Zealand Bankers’ Association chief executive Kirk Hope.

“Being financially fit means being financially confident. It’s about having a plan and realising your goals. It’s about managing your money better on a daily basis to help build a more secure future for you and your family.”

Banks across the country are joining other organisations to support Money Week through a range of free events and initiatives.

“We’re right behind Money Week because people who are financially well-informed make better money decisions. That’s good for banks and good for their customers.”

“If you’re looking for ways to improve your financial fitness your bank is good place to start. They’d be happy to talk to you about your goals and how to achieve them. You can also find out about products and services that best suit your particular needs.

“Taking the first step can be the hardest part. Now’s a great time to do it. Money Week offers something for everyone, whatever your financial fitness levels,” adds Hope.
