Our research into financial literacy helps the Foundation to develop our financial literacy programs, and highlight areas where we can make the biggest impact.
In 2004 and 2010, the Commonwealth Bank Foundation, in partnership with Monash University and Eureka Strategic Research (now the Ipsos-Eureka Research Institute), conducted studies measuring the financial literacy of Australians.

2004 Report (PDF 608kb): Improving financial literacy in Australia: benefits for the individual and the nation.
To create our latest workshops, StartSmart Pathways, we worked with the Workplace Research Centre at the University of Sydney, to gain an understanding of the specific financial literacy needs of Australia’s Vocational Education and Training students.
