Boosting financial knowledge for the general public.

The National Strategy for Financial Capability will be launched at Parliament today, by commerce minister David Clark.

It's brought together more than a hundred financial organisations, to help Kiwis make good decisions around money.

Retirement Commissioner Jane Wrightson says it is the product of discussions around improving the financial capability of New Zealanders.

Wrightson says it aims to demystify money.

"A key component will be a glossary, so the industry is using consistent language and terms."
