Encik Azaddin, before joining AKPK, was the Senior Vice President / Head Community Business Department of Bank Simpanan Nasional.
AKPK is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank Negara Malaysia.
He sought help from AKPK
after he lost his job and was unable to meet his monthly payments.
That's 28 per cent out of 3,540 people between the ages 20 and 60 surveyed by AKPK in its Financial Behaviour Survey 2018 conducted from May to August.
'According to the survey on financial wellbeing, we found that on average, the Malaysian working adult has not reached the comfortable level of wellbeing,' AKPK chief executive Azaddin Ngah Tasir said during the launch of the survey report at the inaugural Financial Literacy Symposium here today.
Wan Azizah added that it was important for agencies such as the AKPK
and other stakeholders to conduct financial literacy programmes for parents on ways to develop the right financial attitudes among their children.
