However, the current New Normal era does not only about adapting to health behaviours. Each person must also reconsider about financial management strategy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which the World Health Organization is yet to announce the closure. Given the fact, PT BFI Finance Indonesia Tbk (BFI Finance) has embraced communities to promote smart financial management through an online discussion themed “Meeting Room: Managing Emergency Fund Strategy in the New Normal Era” with Metta Anggriani, a certified financial planner who is also the founder of Anggriani & Partners firm.
In a live-stream video on BFI Finance’s official YouTube channel, Metta explains that emergency fund functions as a precaution for emergency conditions that require quite a large amount of ready cash, for instance in case of sickness or sudden job loss. By having an emergency fund, basic necessities can still be fulfilled until conditions return to normal again.

A society with adequate financial literacy can also stimulate economic growth in the country.
