REGISTRATIONS

Promoting financial education among women and highlighting the need to focus a few more efforts in improving female financial literacy. This is the aim of the upcoming ESBG event “My World, My Knowledge, My Future: A Female Approach To Financial Education”.

Studies show that women are less likely to be financially literate than men – especially when it comes to investing. Men are statistically more likely to take risks, but also research their activities and understand what they are doing. A basis in financial education is key to our future success in saving, investing, and growing wealth in a safe environment – calculating the risk and understanding what could go wrong, or right.
Empowering consumers – in particular women, who are less engaged than men – with the knowledge to make sound financial decisions and build a better future is important in an era of low savings rates, pandemic recovery and an ever-changing digital world. Every day we find new challenges and face new risks, and we need to be armed with up-to-date information and simple knowledge how to navigate through the financial world.

Join us and be part of a pivotal debate on topics like :

• How can financial institutions raise awareness among women of the risks and responsibilities when investing?
• What can school curricula do to engage more girls in money topics?
• Where can financial institutions improve their financial education plans to appeal to a female audience?
• What can policy makers do to provide support when targeting this group?
