Financial education is a strategic aspect of the work of the European Banking Federation. Under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Wim Mijs the federation actively seeks to boost awareness on the benefits of better financial education through events, publications and partnerships.
In 2017 the EBF initiated the creation of the European Platform for Financial Education, an initiative that aims to promote the need for financial education and to boost financial literacy in Europe, particularly among young people and entrepreneurs, and that also seeks to encourage EU-level leadership in this field. The EBF also is an affiliate member of the OECD International Network on Financial Education and actively works together with the International Federation of Finance Museums.
In 2014 EBF published an overview of good practices in financial education by national banking associaitons. Click here to read it.
