We’ve got financial information in your language

2 March 2018

Our free Financial Information Service (FIS) seminars are so popular that even large halls get packed wall to wall.

That’s what happened to long time FIS Officer Rabia when almost 200 people turned up to a talk she gave in Sydney.

Rabia’s talk was even more distinctive because an interpreter was there to help her deliver her talk to a hall full of Mandarin speakers.

“I find it’s more effective in their own language,” said Rabia. “It removes that barrier and they feel more comfortable. They also feel free to ask questions.”

FIS Officers give many talks with interpreters. Rabia feels strongly that everyone, no matter their level of English, should have access to financial information.

“We don’t want anyone to be left behind,” she said. “We want everyone to know how to boost their nest egg.”

FIS seminars are free.

Every year FIS Officers give talks all around Australia. They can present on a variety of financial topics of interest to the audience, including:

  • superannuation
  • approaching retirement
  • Age Pension
  • aged care
  • investing in property
  • investing in shares
