Launch of ASIC multimedia activities on mobile phone use

Opening remarks by Greg Medcraft, Chairman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission at Holy Cross College, Ryde, 7 May 2013.

Introduction

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to today’s launch of ASIC’s multimedia activities on mobile phone use for Australian students, parents and educators. I’m Greg Medcraft, Chairman of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission – or as we’re more commonly known, ASIC.

This work has been an exciting example of collaboration and partnerships across key agencies and organisations. I’d like to acknowledge the representatives of our partner organisations who are here today ...

ASIC’s commitment to financial literacy education and MoneySmart Teaching overview

While many organisations contribute to financial literacy (as demonstrated today), ASIC has overall responsibility for financial literacy at the federal level. This complements the work we do as a regulator and is consistent with our first strategic priority – helping Australians of all ages make confident and informed financial decisions. The foundation for this is learning the basic principles of money management.

ASIC’s multimedia activities on mobile phone use support the development of consumer and financial literacy skills. This is part of ASIC’s MoneySmart Teaching program – a program developed by ASIC and funded by the Australian Government to teach young people about money.
