Financial Toolbox Series: Saving & Superannuation (Workshop 2)

Event Date: 
12 September 2016
Chartered Accountants ANZ
Level 11, 2 Mill Street

AmCham's Women in Leadership group, Chartered Accountants ANZ and Australian Institute of Company Directors are joining forces to deliver a Financial Tool Box series.

The aim of the workshops is to equip women with greater financial power through knowledge.

According to Roy Morgan research, a typical Australian woman holds barely more than half the superannuation savings of a man, and retires with a third less savings than her male friends. Women under 35 have little over half the average assets of their male counterparts, and the disparity in wealth between the genders across all age groups continues to grow. This limits women’s life choices and makes many women in violent or abusive relationships financially vulnerable.

The Women’s Financial Tool Box series will provide enjoyable, interactive and independent workshops, facilitated by some of Perth’s leading financial experts, to give you the tools you need to set yourself up financially and protect yourself into the future.

PART 1: Build Yourself Up

The first part of this two-part series focuses on how to build yourself up. By this, we mean how to get ahead of your own finances, take control of your spending and saving, and how to recognise and avoid common pitfalls. We will equip you with the financial knowledge and skills you need to become financially independent and in control. Our three workshop sessions will focus on a different aspect of your finances.

Each of our workshop sessions will commence with a presentation from a keynote expert, then will be followed by a discussion session that will see a number of skilled specialists assisting participants by giving focused pointers and answering specific questions to smaller tables of attendees, moving around the room at regular intervals.

Saving and Superannuation

Superannuation is a way to save for your retirement. The money for your super comes from contributions made into your super fund by your employer and sometimes the government will add to it through co-contributions and the low income super contribution. So, if it is all taken care of through your work, what (if anything) can you do to ensure that you have enough in your account for your comfortable retirement, when the time comes, other than topping up your super with your own money? What should you be considering, and putting in place now, so that you have peace of mind for later on?

Our keynote presenter for this workshop is:

Kim Paine CA is a Wealth Manager at Patersons, one of Australia’s largest full-service stockbroking and financial services firms. Kim’s stockbroking and investment management career focuses on tax effective wealth creation strategies for long term portfolios and superannuation. Kim is a Chartered Accountant, is RG-146 qualified for Financial Planning, and holds a Professional Diploma in Stockbroking.
