KUALA LUMPUR: HSBC Bank Malaysia Bhd has collaborated with non-profit organisation Teach For Malaysia (TFM) to create the HSBC FUN-nancial Guide, which aims to help children understand personal finance fundamentals in an easy and interactive manner.
The guide, launched at a virtual panel discussion on "Raising Young Money Managers: Finance for Children” today, tied in with Financial Literacy Month 2020 by the Financial Education Network, HSBC said in a statement.
HSBC Malaysia chief executive officer Stuart Milne said financial literacy is key to making more financially responsible decisions and the goal in designing the FUN-nancial Guide is to provide Malaysians from a young age with the tools needed to take charge of their financial life.
"Our partnership with TFM in introducing the FUN-nancial Guide reflects our commitment to build a sustainable future for the communities we serve, by helping individuals to become more financially savvy,” he said.
The virtual panel discussion served as a platform to spark conversations of financial fundamentals and nurture strong values from young, in support of the nation’s five-year financial literacy roadmap. - Bernama
