Singapore-based Move 78 and Financial Resilience Australia (FRA) are very pleased to announce their new partnership to collaborate on Asia Pacific-based projects with an emphasis on Financial Wellness.
According to The World Bank, in South Asia and the Pacific, “24 million fewer people are estimated to escape poverty” than would have without the pandemic in 2020. With COVID-19, this fragility in everyone’s finances has been exposed and exacerbated, and these financial shocks are taking an undeniable toll on our collective physical, mental and emotional health. This multi-faceted stress is having a devastating ripple effect on our communities and economies throughout the Asia Pacific.
We strongly believe the road to recovery lies in a collective response across-sectors throughout the region, therefore we at Move 78 and FRA have joined together (representing Singapore and Australia respectively) to raise awareness and establish a regional cross-sector community. We aim to address this pressing issue of ensuring Financial Wellness for all, because Everyone has the right to good financial health and wellbeing in order to live full and productive lives.
Hear from the respective CEOs about their plans for the partnership across the Asia Pacific, and potential collaboration opportunities to further Financial Wellness in the region.
Following the introduction of the partnership, the panellists will discuss what Financial Wellness means to them, and the gaps that need to be addressed in each of their respective countries.
