MONEY FM 89.3 and Temasek Polytechnic launch Money Manager series to improve financial literacy among youths

25 March 2022 - MONEY FM 89.3 and Temasek Polytechnic will launch a new Money Manager financial literacy series on 28 March 2022 covering a wide array of topics like debit vs credit cards, retirement planning and buying your first home.

Made for youths by youths, this first-of-its-kind collaboration for MONEY FM 89.3 features 19 podcast episodes produced by Temasek Polytechnic students.

Each 2-minute episode features an interview with a professional from a particular field to provide relevant information and advice to help youths and young working adults gain a better understanding of topics such as budgeting, inflation, insurance and investment.

The first two podcast episodes will debut on 28 March 2022 and subsequently programmed throughout the various timebelts during the week. Listeners can look forward to two new episodes every Monday.

MONEY FM 89.3 Programme Director, Ms Loretta Lopez, said: “At MONEY FM 89.3, we understand that navigating your finances can be daunting early on and education plays a critical role in arming young students and adults with the tools they need to make informed decisions. We are thrilled to collaborate with Temasek Polytechnic on this meaningful project. The students have put a significant amount of effort into the production of this series and in addressing issues which they feel are relevant to their peers and young working adults.”

Ms Tan Siew Kim, Director of Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Business said: “Temasek Polytechnic firmly believes in providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience that maximises both academic learning as well as personal enrichment and growth. It is our privilege to partner with MONEY FM 89.3 on the Money Manager series with 19 financial literacy podcast capsules to help youths make more informed financial decisions and lead a financially stable lifestyle.  Knowing that the students' works have contributed to building a financially more inclusive and resilient community is indeed heartening.”
