Being financially literate means having the necessary knowledge to make informed and responsible decisions about one’s own financial resources. In this event we will examine more closely how well countries do, what the risks of financial illiteracy are, and which policies help promote financial literacy effectively.
Annamaria Lusardi, a professor at the George Washington University and the Academic Director of Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center, delivered the keynote speech. The rest of the panel provided valuable input on the subject from their own perspectives (banking, policy, and academia) before engaging in a discussion with the audience.
