REP 374 Shaping a National Financial Literacy Strategy for 2014–17: Consultation feedback report
Released 18 October 2013.
Since mid-2008, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has been the lead Australian Government agency with responsibility for coordinating financial literacy.
In 2013, ASIC commenced a review of Australia’s National Financial Literacy Strategy, published in 2011, to take stock of progress and develop a refreshed framework for action that addresses the key priorities for the next three years.
We consulted with relevant stakeholders to explore the major issues and priorities to be considered in shaping a National Financial Literacy Strategy for 2014–17 (2014–17 Strategy).
We also conducted a National Financial Literacy Stocktake Survey (2013 Stocktake Survey) to gather a snapshot of current financial literacy initiatives being conducted across Australia. The results of the 2013 Stocktake Survey are published in Report 375 National Financial Literacy Stocktake Survey 2013 (REP 375).
This report summarises the main findings of the consultation process.
