RBNZ's 'Snakes and ladders'

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand has issued a new publication that seeks to inform households about how to manage the risks inherent in saving and investing. The 48-page publication has been commissioned by the Reserve Bank and written by investment commentator Mary Holm.

Its title is Snakes and Ladders: A guide to risk for savers and investors (PDF 569KB), and it follows on from Mary Holm's 1998 booklet The REAL Story: Saving and investing now that inflation is under control.
