Bandar Seri Begawan, 19 March 2016. In continuing with the Global Money Week celebrations, a financial planning talk was conducted today at the Lecture Room, Institute for Leadership, Innovation and Advancement (ILIA) Building, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, led by Baiduri Bank.

The talk was conducted by Siti Aminah Hj Abdul Rahman, Assistant Manager, Wealth Management Centre & Bancassurance, Baiduri Bank, as well as Ampuan Noralrina Ampuan Haji Muhammad, a Personal Financial Planner at Baiduri Bank. The interactive talk focused on saving, how much to save, retirement planning, as well as the importance of budgeting.

Following the previous event for Global Money Week on Monday that targeted primary school students and on Wednesday targeting secondary school students, today’s event targets students from the tertiary level.

It is hoped that with this talk, students are more aware on the importance of saving, maintaining a sustainable financial lifestyle as well as planning for the future.

Global Money Week is an annual global celebration that is organized internationally and coordinated by a non-profit making organisation, Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI), Netherlands.

This event, organized by AMBD with close cooperation with Ministry of Education is an annual event. In 2014, Global Money Week was observed in 118 countries where over 1 million children participated in the week-long activities.

Activities during the week-long event are designed to teach students wise money management, their different financial needs at different stages of life, discerning between needs and wants, and the financial responsibilities that come with it. It is also hoped that the students will have enhanced life skills such as negotiation, social interaction, decision making, volunteerism and of course knowledge on their core subjects such as Mathematics, Economics, Accounting, Business Studies and Commerce.

Baiduri Bank has been a strong supporter of Global Money Week for the past 3 years. In 2015, they were the official sponsor for the Financial ExploRace held at the Bio Innovation Corridor, in conjunction with the Global Money Week.
