For young graduates or employees in the early stages of their professional careers, making big decisions – such as accessing credit, auto enrolment, or choosing financial products, can often be overwhelming and stressful.

This transitional period is where many ‘make or break’ their money habits. Having a good money mind-set is a clear focus throughout this programme.

Over two and a half hours MyBnk’s experts help to build their financial skills, knowledge and confidence. We debunk the jargon and offer helpful hints and impartial tips.

This covers five core money habits to help young professionals become more financially healthy:

  • Habit 1 – Track Your Cash: The importance of budgeting and resetting.

  • Habit 2 – An Informed Borrower: Understanding the consequences of borrowing.

  • Habit 3 – Review & Change: How to become critical consumers.

  • Habit 4 – Prepared for Future You: The importance of saving for the future and pension options.

  • Habit 5 – Diversify Savings: Understanding different saving options and risks.
