Wealth Management Adviser, Kathryn Creasy from Capital Partners Perth discusses the importance of financial knowledge.

Kathryn emphasises that financial literacy is a building block to enable control of your future.

She believes that everyone should have a basic understanding of the value of consistent savings, compound earnings, how to budget, how the taxation system works and why it is essential to have this knowledge.

Capital Partners use a system called ‘successful on purpose‘, meaning clients have the ability to take control of educating themselves.

In this video, Kathryn highlights the importance of instilling financial values into children.

“I am a huge advocate for both partners being involved in managing finances”.

Kathryn reiterates that there is a surplus of information available to anyone who needs assistance on building their financial literacy knowledge.

“Everyone has to start somewhere”.
