INTEGRATED financial services group, Old Mutual has embarked on an education campaign aimed at helping Zimbabweans grasp sound financial management principles. The programme, dubbed “On the Money: The Big Five Secrets of Money Management”, will see various sections of society undergo a day long interactive courses conducted by Old Mutual trainers.
The programme is focused on instilling financial discipline drawing from the behaviour and characteristics of the big five, lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo.
According to Old Mutual Group chief executive Mr Jonas Mushosho, sound financial management principles were central to the restoration of Zimbabwe’s economy.
“In studying the behaviour of the Big five animals found in Zimbabwe, Old Mutual has developed a programme to help Zimbabweans, of any income-earning ability, to manage their money better.
“The unique characteristics of the big five as found in nature, have been distilled to teach us truisms about how to manage our personal and family finances,” said Mr Mushosho.
“On the Money”, which will be taught to adults and parents, would also equip the next generation of investors with sound financial management skills at an early age. We live in a country that is alive with possibilities for our citizens to realise their dreams.
“As we learn new ways of managing our money, we strengthen the fabric of our families and communities. Ultimately, we are able to pursue our dreams and secure a future filled with financial success,” he said.
