Seminar Pelaburan 360 Hari is ASNB’s efforts to educate Malaysians on the various aspects of financial planning. This comprehensive effort is being held each day of the year, covering 140 districts nationwide.
The 360 figure represents a complete 360 degree rotation. The seminar uses this figure to reflect a lifelong education and ASNB’s efforts to change the perceptions and attitudes of Malaysians from lack of awareness on the importance of financial planning to individuals who are knowledgeable and aware of the importance of financial planning.
Through Seminar Pelaburan 360 Hari, ASNB provides financial planning services for individuals as early as 6 months of age until the retirement age.
Seminar Pelaburan 360 Hari is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) by PNB which is aimed to educate the general public about financial planning and investment in unit trust as one of the instruments for financial planning. The initiative began in 2003 and initially it was known as the “Seminar Perancangan Kewangan”. Starting in 2008, the seminar is being held every day; hence the name was consequently changed to Seminar Pelaburan 360 Hari.
The seminar participants were categorised according to the target groups ranging from secondary school students, public and private institutions students/teacher training institutes/colleges/training centres, non-working community, community leaders and local residents. Other categories are uniformed bodies, civil servants, private sector employees, association/non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and ASNB unit holders.
Seminar speakers consist of Certified Financial Planners (CFP) and Registered Financial Planning (RFP) officers from ASNB. Meanwhile, the modules for each seminar are customised according to the target group.
