Celebrate Financial Education Day with us
Would you know how to explain what a policyholder is? And how a pension plan works? Fundación MAPFRE works all year round on helping you to understand these concepts and to make proper financial decisions.
On 2 October, Financial Education Day 2017 is being held to bring home the importance of acquiring an adequate level of understanding of how the culture of finance works at different stages of life. Sooner or later we find ourselves involved and need to make decisions for the future.
Fundación MAPFRE works round the clock to improve knowledge about insurance and to spread the word to the maximum possible number of people. We are delighted to tell you that this year we received an Award for implementing the Financial Education Plan, Finance for Everybody presented by the CNMV and the Bank of Spain. At the same time, the Isadora Duncan Foundation (León) is also recognized with the Award for the best initiative in Financial Education.
Our project Insurance and Pensions for Everybody launched in 2012 was the prizewinner. We created the Insurance and Pensions for Everybody website with the intention of making the insurance world more accessible for society and improving the general public's practical knowledge on this subject. The website receives over 730,000 visits per year and, among many other activities, it offers free online courses and basic teaching material aimed at teachers, educators and anybody else interested in improving the management of their finances.
Many of the agents and institutions involved have prepared activities, lectures and seminars for this day. You will find all the activities on the website, a page created to focus on the event on 2 October and to collate the numerous actions prepared to give maximum coverage to the culture of finance. On the same day there will be a core event that will take place at the headquarters of the Bank of Spain in Madrid.
Lastly, keep an eye on our Facebook page because we have a surprise: a competition in which you can win fabulous prizes. Don't miss out! You can follow closely how the celebration of this day unfolds on social networks using the hashtag #EducacionFinanciera and #deOctubre.
Follow us and enjoy the culture of finance and insurance!
