Improving Financial Literacy! It’s your money, but do you know how it works? How many of us take time to understand how money works? How many of us get all the financial terms or take time to properly manage our money? Just like we learn English, Math and other subjects we should also take the time to learn about financial management. First Citizens Investment Services from inception has been educating the public with lessons about how they can achieve long-term financial success by understanding how money works. We have understood that the possession of knowledge and understanding of financial matters is key to a person maintaining financial health. Hence we have spearheaded efforts to increase financial literacy through various means, most notably our several seminars aimed at addressing financial matters. Our financial education programmes are wide ranging and spread knowledge of basic and more sophisticated financial markets. This knowledge is also an effective tool in ensuring more financial inclusion of the most vulnerable sectors of the population, and help fight poverty and inequality. First Citizens has spared no resources when it comes to ensuring Saint Lucians become more financially literate. Our campaigns encompass all cross sections of persons in Saint Lucia. Following are a list of the annual seminars carried our by First Citizens in order to promote financial literacy and educate the public about how financial policy decisions can impact them. Market Outlook Seminar: Held in January/February this seminar allows persons to learn the economic outlook for the year for Saint Lucia and the region. We feature experts from our Research & Analytics department as well as local economic experts.
