Whether you're looking for a mortgage, or opening a bank
account for the first time, having the know-how to negotiate
complex financial products is essential. Yet few of us have ever
received adequate financial education.
Financial illiteracy is an issue across the world and, with
around 150 million new consumers of financial services joining the
global economy each year, the problem is on the increase.
Consumer groups are ideally placed to provide financial
education and raise awareness about consumer rights when purchasing
or using financial services.
CI is working with our members to ensure consumers have the
skills to manage their money, the advice they need to make the
right financial decisions and the confidence to ask questions and
defend their rights.
