Seminars

Tackling debt

Good vs bad debt and how to get out of debt fast

(approx. 1 hour) 

It’s good to be able to borrow money. It can help us buy things like a house or a business, or to get an education. But sometimes it can turn into a real drag on our finances. This Sorted seminar will introduce your participants to managing debt well. 

Getting ahead

Sorting our money, tackling debt and seeing the future

 

(approx. 1 hour) 

Getting our money sorted can make an amazing difference to our lives, and it can be easier than we might think – especially when we have a little help. This 'Getting ahead' seminar will introduce participants to three main things to do to get sorted financially: sorting our money, tackling debt and seeing our future. 

Setting goals, making a budget

The first steps to getting sorted

(approx. 1 hour) 

Setting our financial goals puts us in charge – whether those goals are short or long term, small or large. Whatever they are, having goals gives us something to aim for. And making a budget helps us achieve them. By setting realistic goals and a budget, we start to bring our goals within reach. This Sorted seminar will introduce participants to setting goals and making a budget. 

Dialling up KiwiSaver

How the scheme works, choosing a fund and making the most of KiwiSaver

 

(approx. 1 hour) 

KiwiSaver is a great deal, helping many of us get ahead and be better off in retirement. But there is some tweaking to do – like picking the right fund to be in – in order to get the most out of it. This Sorted seminar will cover the key ways to optimise participants’ entire KiwiSaver experience and get the best results. 

Retirement planning

Planning for life after work and where the money will come from

 

(approx. 1.5 hours) 

Thinking about retirement is the first step you need to take to achieve the lifestyle you want when you’re no longer working. But what else do you need to do? Getting out of debt and saving for the long term will both help you to be better off in your retirement. This Sorted seminar introduces audiences to retirement planning. 

Saving and investing

Paying ourselves first and investing to build wealth

 

Saving and Investing (approx. 1 hour) 

Learning to save regularly is a big step towards getting ahead financially, and it can also help you get those things you want. And saving is the gateway to investing – making our money work for us so that it either provides us with an income or increases in value (or both!). This Sorted seminar will introduce participants to the basic principles for saving and investing.
