Building financial literacy with Banqer

We’re passionate about banking on the next generation and making sure all Kiwi kids are financially literate. That’s why we partner with Banqer, to help them enable primary and secondary school classrooms throughout the country to prepare students for the financial world ahead.

How we're working with Banqer

We've been working with Banqer since 2016 to enable classrooms to access Banqer Primary free to primary and intermediate students, and Banqer High discounted for high school students. Co-founded by local entrepreneur Kendall Flutey, Banqer Primary and Banqer High are online tools used in classrooms to create a virtual economy that inspires students to be curious and confident with money.

Banqer in the classroom

Within Banqer, students from year 3-13 are able to manage their budget, explore career paths, save for their future, and dabble with investing. They'll regularly face decisions that have financial impacts, learning the consequences of their choices first hand, in the safe environment of Banqer. Since starting, we've had some great successes:

  • Banqer has been used by over 150,000 students across Aotearoa
  • More than 26,000 Banqer term deposits have been opened by students
  • More than 25,000 students have experienced saving for retirement.
