Greetings everyone, I’m Victor Dawes. I took on the role as Chairman of the IFEC in November last year and it is a pleasure for me to be part of Hong Kong Money Month this year.
In the past two years, due to the pandemic, people are spending more time at home. Besides focusing on our health and wellness, we should also take good care of ourselves. Let's take this opportunity to invest in ourselves and start planning for the future to achieve financial freedom.
The theme of this year’s Hong Kong Money Month is “Invest in Yourself”. To encourage everyone to stay financially healthy and make good use of the time at home to pick up financial management knowledge and skills.
The findings from the Financial Literacy Monitor conducted by the IFEC with Hong Kong adults in 2021 revealed that working adults are more eager to learn about financial management than tertiary students and retirees while the overall learning attitude towards financial management still has room for improvement.
I hope that all of you will actively take part in the Hong Kong Money Month 2022 activities to acquire new financial knowledge and skills and develop good investment and financial habits.
