Financial literacy course returns to Bermuda College
The Financial Literacy Series will again to be offered this fall by Bermuda’s Chartered Financial Analysts.
The CFA Society Bermuda, in partnership with the Bermuda College PACE Program, provides an introduction to basic money and financial concepts.
Topics covered will include “Setting Financial Goals and Budgeting”, “Income, Expenses and Debt”, and “Planning for Retirement”.
First held two years ago, the series attracts interest from all parts of the community. Upon completion of the four-week program, past participants have expressed increased confidence in their ability to manage day-to-day expenses.
Speaking on behalf of CFA Society Bermuda, Robin Masters, CFA said “We’re not surprised by the diverse group of people who attend these classes. Everybody, regardless of their age, education, or financial situation, is looking for ways to become more confident when it comes to their money, because everybody wants to reduce their financial stress.
“Our course combines financial knowledge with ways to increase financial awareness and looks at the impact our behaviours can have on our financial health. We want everyone who attends to come away feeling empowered to make sound financial decisions.”
Ms Masters continued, “We see financial literacy as using financial education to accomplish financial capability. In other words, how to put your knowledge into practice so that you can manage and control your money choices.”
Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings for four consecutive weeks, beginning September 29.
The series will be delivered online using the College’s Zoom platform. Course and registration details can be found on the PACE website https://www.college.bm/pace.
