Financial education

COM(2007) 808 final

Financial education enables individuals to improve their understanding of financial products and concepts, and develop the skills necessary to improve their financial literacy; i.e. to be aware of financial risks and opportunities and to make informed decisions in their choice of financial services. It is a life-long issue.

The purpose of this Communication is to assist stakeholders in the development of financial education schemes by

  • raising awareness of the need to address low financial education;
  • encouraging and promoting the provision of high-quality financial education within the EU, including the sharing of best practice;
  • developing certain practical, facilitating tools to achieve these aims.
