In recent years, the efforts of the Bucharest Stock Exchange towards corporate social responsibility have focused on complex educational projects that provide young people, but not only, with access to basic financial information. The initiative starts from the studies that place Romania among the last places in the European Union regarding the level of financial literacy.
Fluent in Finance: nationwide free of charge seminars and educational platform
Fluent in Finance is a complex educational program consisting of 2 components: free of charge seminars offered by the Bucharest Stock Exchange to employees within the Romanian companies, individuals, students, MA and PhD students, high school students and the eponymous online educational platform.
The Program, launched on July 15, 2015 consists of seminaries in multiple locations in Romania, with the purpose of increasing the level of financial knowledge of Romanian citizens in general and to teach them how to manage their own resources. More specifically, during seminars you will find out which are the most important channels to redirect your personal investments and the degree of risk involved, how to diversify your investments and how to invest in the stock market.
In addition to these seminars that allow direct interaction with current or potential investors, we developed the online platform http://www.fluentinfinante.ro where anyone can access 24/7 online courses about the capital market, a dictionary consisting of economic terms, educational movies, tests of their financial knowledge, and the possibility to sign up for a seminar.
What we have achieved during the 3-year period of the Program? The figures speak for themselves. Click here to see the results.
