Westpac separation guide

Westpac separation guide

This morning by sheer chance I saw an ad for the Westpac separation guide. It is excellent.

It helps people contemplating or going through separation to contemplate the future- at least from a financial perspective. It does not:

  • focus on all pervasive domestic violence (unless I have missed it)
  • focus on kids.

Unless I am mistaken, this is the first of the big 4 banks to produce such a guide- which  will make the journeys for many people that much easier- by getting them to focus on what needs to be done now, and what needs to be planned for financial independence.

Good on Westpac!
