The Exchange


Following on from the National Strategy for Financial Literacy, the Exchange was established to help improve financial literacy through powerful and practical initiatives.

We have an emphasis on sustainable and enduring behaviour change, helping people to get ahead financially and improve their lives.

The Exchange is an initiative coordinated by the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income to further build the financial capability of New Zealanders. It's a collaborative partnership between members of the financial services sector and the public sector with the Governor-General, Lt Gen The Rt Hon Sir Jerry Mateparae as its patron.
