AXIS Pensions Trust Limited has rolled out an educative programme on personal finances to help sensitise the public to the rudiments of proper financial management.
Dubbed ‘Axis Smart Money Talk,’ the programme features a discussion with an expert on finance and is broadcast virtually on the company’s Facebook page.
In a release on the programme, Axis Pensions said the initiative was meant to help answer the “many pressing questions” that Ghanaians had on personal finance.
It said in spite of the pertinent nature of personal finances, not many people were exposed to information that would help them take the relevant decisions to improve their lots and protect their finances.
“The ‘Axis Smart Money Talk’ has been introduced to fill that void,” the statement copied to the Daily Graphic said.
It explained that the ‘Smart Money Talk’ was an interactive talk show hosted by Axis Pension on Facebook live on facebook.com/axispensiontrust.
It said the programme was designed to empower Ghanaians to take control of their personal finance.
The release explained that the discussion topics included budgeting, debt management, estate planning, saving and building wealth.
Series on housing
It said housing was one critical priority of most Ghanaians and the company had decided to dedicate the entire October to discussing ways people could own homes.
“Securing real estate, either for business or for residential purposes is a huge undertaking.”
“In certain instances, the acquisition of real estate is conducted at the expense of liquidity in old age,” it said and added that the company had partnered with the First National Bank Ghana (FNB) to undertake the series housing.
It explained that the discussions would be interactive and focused on providing viewers with viable alternatives for acquiring property while also planning to retire in style.
It said among other people, the Executive Head of Home Loans at FNB, Mr Kojo Addo-Kufour, and Real Estate Consultant, Madam Dansoaa Adote, would be featuring as guests.
“These experienced and well-resourced experts in the real estate field have been assembled to discuss various related topics including ‘financing my dream home, ‘building wealth through real estate’ and ‘retirement planning and real estate – getting it right.”
The statement advised the general public to take charge of their financial future by joining the discussions to be informed.
It said the discussions would take place on October 7, 14 and 21 at 4pm on the Axis Pension Facebook page.
