Financial planning week 2019

Each year, the FPA and our members celebrate Financial Planning Week by exploring an interesting topic around financial matters to raise awareness about the benefits of financial planning. This year’s Financial Planning Week will run from 19-25 August. The theme – Gifts that Give – will explore the gift spending habits and expenses of Australians, based on research that uncovers what gifts we give, how much we spend, as well as fun and fascinating gift-giving trends. We will also invite Australians to consider a gift that lasts through generations: the gift of a financial plan. This year’s integrated campaign will include the below elements.


National research is presented in a visualised digital report with a mix of fun facts and serious data about gift-giving, infographics on research findings, and gift-giving trends among different life stages.


Hosted on the Money & Life website and promoted via social media, the eBook will include practical and fun information on how much people spend, and what we like to give and receive for special occasions, like weddings, Christmas and children’s birthdays.

money & Life content

The FPA’s Money & Life website contains consumer-related articles on the research and themes of this year’s campaign. You can take the FPA Gift-giver personality quiz.


Social media will be used for sharing the research insights, eBook and Money & Life content by using the hashtags – #GiftsthatGive and #FPWeek2019.


Consumers can give their adult children or friends the gift of a financial plan, by pledging to contribute to pay for the services of a financial planner to an agreed value. Download gift voucher template. A co-branded option in the FPA Member toolkit for members to supply to their own clients.


A consumer competition via FPA social media, will invite Australians to nominate themselves, or someone they love, to receive the gift of time with a financial planner as a gift from the FPA. The competition goes live on 21 August.
