>> See the brochure
>> Learn more about financial education​​

BRUSSELS, 28 January 2019 – Savings and retail banking association ESBG released recently a new financial education brochure​ that focuses on good practice from ESBG members, addressing how financial education can act as a powerful tool in the fight against over-indebtedness.

A lack of education – particularly financial education –  can be the cause in some cases of some of the problems affecting part of the financial system, namely over-indebtedness, lack of diversification, fraud and abuse. An increased level of financial literacy can mitigate those, particularly over-indebtedness. 

ESBG posits that increased levels of financial literacy, complementing adequate consumer protection regulation, can lead to fairer and more inclusive societies.
