Financial Inclusion Series: Pensions
March 17, 2021 @ 18:00 - 20:00 CET
Financial literacy is the ability to understand and effectively use various financial skills, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing. People who are financially literate are generally less vulnerable to financial fraud. These skills also help support various life goals, such as saving for education or retirement, using debt responsibly, and running a business.
An Introduction to Financial Inclusion series.
This series will be lead by Aika Msuya, a Model Risk specialist and a trained Actuary at DNB.
This series promotes financial literacy, inclusion and empowerment. Each session will provide you with insight into a different topic and equip you with the knowledge required to access the financial services available to you, from pensions, to insurance and personal investment.
The first session will take a deep dive into pensions. The information from this session will empower you to take the driver seat in your personal economic situation, and plan to secure your own, and your family’s future.
This event is co-produced by HerSpace, Diversify and Africa Connect.
