It is not farfetched to say that ﬁnancial education started the day we developed a feeling towards money – the excitement when you receive or make money, the sadness when the hunger bites hard, or anger when your parents hold on to your weekly allowance. You were aware and being schooled (by the Universe though – as I like to say).
But, there’s a twist somewhere. Simply, the same underlying principles driving education (or scholarship) equally drive ﬁnancial education, namely intelligence and deliberate learning. It was on these heels that ﬁnancial intelligence has become most topical in recent times. And with several online ﬁnance and investment platforms leveraging the incredible tech advances and disruptiveness, this is really our ﬁnest hour.
Now, we understand that there’s almost too much information to take in, too many savings and investment options, and this can really make that deliberate ﬁnance education unnecessary tasking and boring. But, say no more, Tell!’s gatchu!
