National Strategy


Everyone getting ahead financially

The vision of the National Strategy for Financial Capability is everyone getting ahead financially. It has five work streams: to get New Zealanders to talk and learn about money, to plan for the future, to be debt-smart and to save/invest. The Government’s 2015 Statement on Financial Capability shows how the National Strategy aligns with other government actions.

CFFC is proud to lead the National Strategy, and we value our role in helping create a supportive environment among the financial capability sector. Our partners number more than 150 organisations across government, the community and in the private sector to pool our collective knowledge and abilities, so that together we can help raise the financial capability of more New Zealanders than we would do alone. Each year, we do a snapshot survey to track the collective efforts across all our partners, and we’ve got some examples of the National Strategy in Action too.
