Commission for Financial Capability

Community Organisation

We build financial capability to equip the retirees of today and tomorrow. As an autonomous crown entity our main task is to help the financially vulnerable become financially capable, putting them in the best possible position to reach their life goals and reach their retirement in good financial health.

We want you to be equipped to be on the winning side of your decisions.

That means knowing where you want to get to, what success looks like, and having a plan to get there.

Remember success is about your best result and nobody else’s. It is easy to give up when everyone else seems so much further ahead, but in the words of Warren Buffett, ‘No one knows who’s swimming naked until the tide goes out’ (in other words the neighbour's new car may just be a large loan on wheels). It’s an important message that you can only carve your own path, at your own pace.
