Current status in Europe

According to the pre-analysis made by the FINMAN project consortium, it has never been easier to spend or invest money than nowadays. There are open markets, online shopping, traditional and modern investment opportunities, like stocks, shares and Bitcoins and almost everything is easily accessible via mobile technologies. On the other hand, we have an expansive banking sector that offers financing opportunities often poorly understood by the general public. In Europe, virtually every adult citizen has to operate with money in some capacity. Free movement and trade opportunities in the EU also promote transnational contacts and exchange, but very few people are familiar with the details of foreign country’s financing.

FINMAN project goal

Our goal is to provide financial education to the most disadvantaged people, who need this knowledge the most, before making major financial decisions and support them in order to make the ones which are the best for each one individually. For that reason, we intend to develop learning content, assessment tools and a trainer’s guide based on the identified knowledge gaps and skills needed. Moreover, all the material has the potential to reach even more people not only during the project but also outside of it, since it can be used for further initiatives, as well.
