The Centre for Financial Capability were excited to attend the Ring the Bell for Financial Literacy event, organised by the World Federation of Exchanges, at the London Stock Exchange.
This annual and global event was part of World Investor Week and celebrated financial education, literacy and inclusion. Many other charities and organisations were also present, including City Pay it Forward, Young Enterprise, Make My Money Matter and Girls Are INvestors. The event was also attended by a group of secondary school children, and two of the students were invited to ring the bell and commence market trading alongside Julia Hogget, the CEO of the London Stock Exchange.
The event was a brilliant way to celebrate all the work that is being done to expand financial education and financial literacy. We were delighted to be invited to attend and to meet many other organisations in the financial education field. Thank you LSEG!
