At the Brussels launch of the European Money Week, Annamaria Lusardi, Academic Director at the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Centre (GFLEC), delivered a keynote speech stressing the growing importance of financial literacy.

As she said, “you need a visionary leader to advance in financial literacy“. Professor Lusardi is definitely one of them.

Indeed, she gave insights on why and how to deal with the lack of financial education of European citizens. She also demonstrated why financial education is an essential skill today to live in the 21st century… an inspiring presentation that we invite you to hear by yourself.
