KickStart Money

Building foundations for a better
financial future

Twenty of Britain’s leading savings and investment firms, brought together by TISA, have launched KickStart Money, a first-of-its-kind initiative that calls for effective financial education to become a compulsory element of the National Primary School Curriculum.

Money consciousness and attitudes are set at the age of seven, according to research from the Money Advice Service.

However, financial education remains absent from primary school teaching, and significant proportions of the UK population lack the basic skills and knowledge to effectively manage their money.

So KickStart Money has been developed as a mechanism for the financial services industry to proactively and collectively transform the long-term savings behaviour of the next generation.

Suella Braverman, MP for Fareham and Chair of the APPG inquiry into the effectiveness of financial education in UK schools:
“Young people are growing up with far greater opportunities to spend money and a wider range of financial decisions to make. Financial education has the potential to transform people’s life chances by equipping them with the vital skills to manage their money well and plays an important role in helping young people to navigate these new financial and consumer landscapes. Kickstart Money is a great new project which will help children up and down the country to learn how to manage their personal finances, setting them up to deal with the financial challenges of later life.”

Lord Hutton, former Secretary of State for the Department of Work & Pensions:
“Learning about the basics of money is essential if we want to build a more financially literate nation. KickStart Money is an exciting and much needed new project aiming to help young students to understand the consequences of debt as well as the importance of saving and investing for their future.”
