DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

The Foundation promotes financial literacy, encouraging a culture of responsible management of investment and savings, through projects of economic citizienship, following an enriched approach to the themes of economics and finance towards vulnerable groups.

The current financial system needs financial literacy, in order to establish once again an atmosphere of trust between institutions and consumers, reassuring security and transparency.

The Global Thinking Foundation offers its resources to help savers, from families to retail investors, aiming to develop one’s financial knowledge and competencies. The Foundation operates nationwide, with several activities and projects, pursuing exclusively public interests and social values.

Financial behaviour and decisions (such as children education, budgeting and pension plans) of an individual inevitably influence his or her wellbeing, as well as his or her family’s: a responsible, informed and intelligent choice, along with an objective judgement, is the key to achieve a suitable management of one’s economic resources. In order to achieve such goal, one must acquire adequate financial competencies.
