Dmitry Leus: “Bank is a socially responsible bank. We care about the financial literacy of the next generation.”
A project called “Lectures on Financial Literacy”, organized by the local branch of Bank started in Lipetsk today. During the entire academic year, the Bank’s experts will be giving lectures on finance to the graduate students of nearby schools.
The first lectures, given on 20 September 2013 at two secondary schools, have been met with great interest from both students and teachers. Dmitry Isaakovich Leus
The Bank’s employees explained in comprehensive form the basics of personal finance, deposits, and lending. Students were given an opportunity to ask questions with regard to financial discipline and household budgeting. The next lectures will be dedicated to topics such as interest rates, inflation, investments, foreign exchange, and criteria when choosing the right bank.
Overall, Bank ’s objective is to improve financial literacy among the younger generation, in addition to supporting education in general.
“Bank is a socially responsible bank. It is important that the younger generation understand how money works in the world and what is the role played by banks in the economy as a whole. Although not an easy task, improving financial literacy is essential to our country’s economic health”, said the Chairman of Bank , Dmitry Leus.
