Financial Education Conference Evolution, Revolution – Financial Education in the Digital Age
The digital transformation is taking place in the financial services industry at an unprecedented speed. Digitisation and new technologies raise fundamental questions related to the role of financial education as a tool to reinforce consumer protection. More than ever, it seems that there is a specific need for ‘digital financial education’ and guidance to support this.
Financial education programmes and assessment methodologies need to necessarily evolve along with this disruptive trend, in order to fulfill their purposes. What kind of financial literacy skills, also related to digital, are needed? Lastly, institutions adapt to the digital revolution and have in place innovative initiatives in the field of financial education and inclusion.
This WSBI-ESBG conference will be an opportunity to exchange on the need and challenges related to digital financial education.
