Money Week 14 - 20 August 2017

Money Week 2017 takes place between 14 and 20 August 2017, and involves events all around the country to encourage New Zealanders to talk about money and develop greater financial capability. Led by the Commission For Financial Capability, Money Week offers whānau a good opportunity to investigate all things financial. This year's theme is around debt, particularly the question “What does debt do for you?”

This year for Money Week, the Commission for Financial Capability have brought the five major banks together for their Birds of a Feather campaign: ANZ, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank and Westpac aimed at helping our Maori and Pacific whānau talk about debt. A series of videos made by CFFC in conjunction with the Reserve Bank have been released, featuring well-known Kiwis talking debt, such as Peter Hillary (son of the late Sir Edmund Hillary) and Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy.
