The collaboration agreement supports the 'Finance for Millennials' initiative, a project led by financier Jordi Mabras and presenter Sergi Mas, to disseminate economic and financial information to universities. This new agreement strengthens the institute's commitment to promote financial education among young people, and complements the agreement that the ICF has held with the IEF (EFEC programme) for six years now.
The ICF has signed a collaboration agreement to support the 'Finance for Millennials' project, an initiative created and led by Jordi Mabras, financier, disseminator and educator in financial topics; and Sergi Mas, journalist and presenter of television and radio programmes.
The main objective of the project is to offer young people aged 18-30 with economic and financial information, to equip them with the abilities needed to properly manage their budget and make good financial decisions, such as managing loans.
'Finance for Millennials' will disseminate this kind of content through in-person sessions in different Catalan universities throughout this year. In fact, the project has entered collaboration agreements with the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) and the Ramón Llull University (University of Blanquerna, Salle and IQS). Between three and six in-person sessions are set to take place this year.
This new collaboration agreement reaffirms the commitment of the ICF to promote economic and financial knowledge among young people; and its mission to generate added value across society. In this regard, this agreement complements the one that the ICF has held with the IEF for the last six years, to participate in the Financial Education in Catalan Schools programme (EFEC).
