Elizabeth Naumovski is honoured and proud to be the first recipient of the 2019 Wealth Professional IFSE Institute Award for Financial Literacy Champion.
Elizabeth comes from an immigrant background and is first generation Canadian. When her parents came to Canada, they taught her to save every penny and work hard for every dollar.
Her mother Marija taught her about saving money and took her to the local bank at age 9 to open a bank account and show her how to save money and not go into debt. Her father Jovan taught her that if you can’t afford it, you don’t buy it. Cash is king!
Elizabeth Naumovski has worked on Bay Street for over 20 years and is a well respected Financial Literacy advocate and a champion for women’s issues.
Elizabeth is passionate about Financial Literacy & is host of Finance Is Personal, a half-hour show on Financial Literacy. Finance is Personal can be seen on YouTube around the world.
She decided to host women only as her guests and focus on Financial Literacy for women of all ages. Even though Finance is Personal has a skew towards women, the show is seen by men, women and children, with the accompaniment of their pets.
Finance Is Personal premiered April 2018.
In February 2019, Elizabeth partnered with Ability Online so that she can contribute financial literacy to their community through Finance Is Personal and a financial literacy forum.
