December 2022

Exploring how financial behaviours can impact health and wellbeing

In recent years, the topic of financial wellbeing has received increased focus as a key dimension impacting our overall wellbeing. How we think about, compare, and use money have all been proven to affect our overall satisfaction and happiness.
At AIA Financial Wellbeing, we believe that there is a need for increased education and access to financial advice, so that all Australians can learn how to use positive financial behaviours to lead healthier, longer, better lives.
This paper recognises and explores the concept of financial wellbeing, understanding the impact it has on our physical and mental health. It also considers how financial knowledge and behaviours play a role in financial satisfaction and ultimately, our wellbeing.
