Some 50 experts from different fields are meeting from Wednesday, 16 November, until Friday 18 at the 5th Financial Education Congress, organized in Malaga by Unicaja’s Edufinet Project and whose central theme is financial inclusion.

 

This new edition, sponsored by Funcas Educa, is entitled ‘The challenge of ensuring financial inclusion in a changing environment’ and is divided into 13 sessions and six round tables.

 

The congress can be followed both in person, at the Centro Cultural Fundación Unicaja de Málaga (Palacio Episcopal), and online, through the Edufinet Congress website, where it is also possible to register for free.

Domínguez; the Head of Social Studies at Funcas, Elisa Chuliá; the General Manager of Fundación Unicaja, Sergio Corral, and the Director General of General and Technical Secretariat of Unicaja Banco, Vicente Orti.        

 

In the different sessions and round tables, the participants will emphasize the need for everyone to have access to quality financial products and services, bearing in mind the current technological development.

 

Financial education can be a strategic tool in facilitating inclusion, as a better understanding of financial concepts and products will enable citizens to be more aware of risks and opportunities and, in short, to make informed decisions.

Likewise, it seeks to identify the main challenges currently posed by financial and digital education in relation to improving the culture in this area from a general perspective, but also with vulnerable groups in mind.
