There needs to be a shift in how we’re designing finance.
It affects all our lives — shaping our lifestyle, opportunities, and even our mental & physical wellbeing.
However, it’s inherently complex, often difficult to understand, and our system can at times exclude or exploit those who are most vulnerable.
Coupled with the fact that Australia’s population has varying financial literacy and mathematical ability, and isn’t set up to deal with complex, abstract finance systems; we’ve created a situation which is detrimental for almost everyone involved.
So, how might we create products, services, and policies that improve Australia’s financial inclusivity, literacy, and wellbeing?
How can we pivot the design of our financial services to drive human value for people, as well as business value for financial institutions?
Hosted by Mentally Friendly, industry experts below will engage in a lively debate on the role that finance needs to play in creating a wellbeing economy.
