For our 18th consecutive Financial Planning Week, 20-26 August, we are encouraging Australians to ‘Share the Dream’ with the next generation.
There has never been a more important time than now to #sharethedream and pass on healthy money habits with the next generation – the #invisiblemoney generation – for whom the digital economy will be the norm.
What to expect
This year we will be sharing money wisdom and practical tips with the people raising the next generation, so they can pass on the financial habits and skills that children will need later on in life.
Coming soon, we have a great line up of activity:
sHARE THE DREAM RESEARCH
New national research has been commissioned to uncover and better understand our nation’s readiness for the future of money. The research will include the views of 1,000 parents of Gen Z and Gen Alpha (aged 4 to 18 years) on raising the ‘invisible money generation’, uncovering gaps in money knowledge and expectations between generations.
kids on camera
Want to know what kids think about money? Check back during Financial Planning Week to watch our videos capturing kids on camera, sharing their fun and curious ideas about money, and what the future of money looks like for them.
TIPS TO RAISE THE NEXT GENERATION
We’re busy developing content for our Money & Life website that will provide tips and insights for raising the invisible money generation, including a free eBook. There will also be a fun quiz to help you better understand what kind of money parent you are!

CONTINUING TO INSPIRE DREAMS
In 2016 we uncovered the financial hopes and fears of Australians, and produced the Dare to Dream report. Last year we discovered that Australians who are living the dream are nearly three times more likely to seek financial advice than those not living the dream, uncovered in our 2017 Live the Dream report. This year we continue the dream theme to reveal how we as a nation are sharing the dream uncovering how we are raising the invisible money generation. Stay tuned for more.
