Making financial decisions and dealing with financial providers can be difficult. Finding useful and relevant information for your particular money situation can feel overwhelming. There is so much information available but where to start and who to trust?
Ecstra is building a Knowledge Hub - information, consumer guides, research, calculators, media articles and an evidence base of “What Works”. We will not replicate existing resources, rather we aim to collect and present information from a variety of sources in a straight forward format.
Independent and government resources (in particular ASIC’s MoneySmart) are great starting points. Many financial organisations also provide useful educational information (distinct from sales materials), and we will always include the source of information to assist you decide.
We will be working on this massive task in the coming months. Currently the Knowledge Hub is organised by delivery method but this will be regrouped by topic shortly.
