July is National Savings Month
SASI will launch the traditional July National Savings Month Campaign on Thursday 30 June 2016. The Breakfast will be held at the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) Main Auditorium.
This year we celebrate SASI’s 15th anniversary and look back at the evolution of South African Savings during this period. The numbers are a challenge but instead of dwelling on the economy and poor savings culture, we CELEBRATE SAVING. We celebrate our anchor supporters The IDC, National Treasury and Old Mutual who have partnered with SASI since inception.
We cast the spotlight on ordinary savers who have found success in saving and share their testimonies. We also look at Savings vehicles available in the formal sector and discuss in a round table the success of new additions such as Retail Savings Bonds and Tax Free Savings Accounts.
We celebrate partnerships of SASI in the last 15 years as well as those individuals who have worked tirelessly to promote savings in the last 15 years.
We also look ahead at the future and consider a positive messaging that all can save and move towards Financial Capability through positive enforcement of saving.
In recognition of a tough economic environment, SASI will lower the tone of SASI July Savings month 2016. This year we will have no expo but a networking breakfast, round table discussion and recognition of saving success stories.
SASI will also hold savings workshops and join our partner in Starsavers as we Teach Children To Save.
Let us celebrate the savers of the last 15 years and look ahead at what will be!
