Educating Consumers

MoneySENSE Website

Another major initiative was the revamp of the MoneySENSE website. The new website was launched in June 2012 and features better navigation and access to content. Much of the content was revised and rewritten in simple language.

There are now guides to help consumers deal with financial concerns at particular life events or where there are major decisions to be made, like getting married, buying a home or starting a family.

Consumers can also learn more about the various aspects of financial management such as budgeting and saving, managing debt, financial planning and goal setting, buying insurance and basic investing. There are also guides on banking and payment services, credit facilities and loans, and on the more commonly available insurance and investment products. A budget template and financial calculators are also available to aid consumers in managing their money.

We encourage consumers to visit the MoneySENSE website (www.moneysense.gov.sg) to equip themselves with useful and objective financial information.
