The Penny Drops is a podcast series that aims to have Matty J and listeners finally understand the one thing that makes the world go round… money! Across six episodes, fearless experts will unpack all the essentials – money personalities, financial planning, budgeting, juggling finances with your partner to buy a house, investing, and superannuation.
In The Penny Drops, Matty J will talk to CommBank experts, plus experts in their fields including financial commentator Effie Zahos, financial planner Adam Montana, and Elisabeth Shaw, CEO of Relationships Australia, with the aim of educating himself and listeners.
Matty J said: “Prior to partnering with CommBank on this podcast, I had literally no idea how to write a budget, set financial goals, invest or even where my super was. But after talking to experts on these topics, I feel much more educated and excited for other millennials to follow my journey in this space getting well versed in the world of finance too.”
