(Be Money Wise)

According to various studies conducted in the past, only two out of five or 39% of Malaysians have the habit of saving money. As a result, less than one out of three individuals or 28% of Malaysians have a budget for their expenses and stick to it.

These statistics prove that the general awareness levels among Malaysians on the importance of good financial management habits are still lacking. Good financial management habits and smart investing are very important topics for the public.

When armed with the right skills and knowledge to manage finances smartly, individuals will be able to plan their finances better and live a more comfortable and stable lifestyle.


The objective of B.M.W. is to create awareness and increase the skills among members of the public on financial planning and management, smart investing and identifying as well as avoiding illegal investment schemes/scams.
