I always tell my friends that good stuff is seldom popular as paid one. Indeed, especially those provided and subsidised by government. The main reason could be that nobody is responsible to share good yet free stuff with you. Paid stuff, on the other hand, is financially motivated and highly promoted in the market.
Luckily, our Bank Negara (BNM) actively promote "free-of-charge" basic financial education to public. Thus, it will be a good idea to acquire these basic financial knowledge first before considering or participating other financial education.
In the following content, I am going to concisely introduce some "free-of-charge" financial services that you may consider to improve your financial intelligent.
