Old Mutual Story
Saving for education

The number one concern for many parents across South Africa is the cost of educating their children. This is becoming more concerning when one considers the sharp increases in education inflation, a figure that is expected to be as high as 9.5% in 2017. This means that a parent whose child starts grade R in 2017 can expect to pay between R1,332,112 and R3,011,415 for public or private education respectively. Our 'On the Money' financial education program on Facebook and Twitter provides an innovative digital platform that allows access to financial educational workshops for communities and employees wherever they want and whenever they need it.
