Prudential Malaysia’s financial education program recognized by central bank

Prudential Malaysia’s financial education program recognized by central bank Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad (PAMB) was given The Best Financial Education and Awareness Award by Bank Negara Malaysia, the country’s central banking institution, for its efforts in providing financial education for children and the youth of the country.
 
The insurer was recognized for its flagship financial education endeavors: Karnival Cha-Ching, Cha-Ching Live in Malaysia, and Duit Right. These programs involve interactive classroom activities that promote good financial habits to children by teaching four key money concepts: Earn, Save, Spend, and Donate, as well as imparting the value of hard work.
 
The award was presented during Bank Negara’s Karnival Kewangan 2017, a financial expo aimed to inform the public on money matters, held from January 13-15, 2017 at the Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur.
