The Nigerian Exchange Group Plc., on Thursday, commemorated the annual Global Money Week with a virtual X-Tour and digital Closing Gong Ceremony with pupils.
This year’s GMW was themed ‘Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Your Money’ with the slogan, ‘Learn. Save. Earn’.
In a statement made available to Financial Street, the NGX Group said it would continue to play its role in driving financial literacy as a tool for economic development.
The Divisional Head, Trading Business, Nigerian Exchange Limited, Jude Chiemeka, was quoted as saying, “At NGX, we will not relent on our drive to pursue initiatives and facilitate conversations that prioritise financial literacy as a catalyst through which the country can achieve financial and economic growth. This is evidenced by our initiatives such as the Annual National Competition, Adopt-A-School and X-Tour initiatives, and other financial literacy programmes.
“We are, therefore, pleased to host the bright young leaders at Children’s International School in commemoration of GMW 2021 and look forward to empowering young people to not only learn to manage their money wisely, but also to transfer this knowledge to their families and communities.”
The Head of Department, Market Surveillance, Mr Abimbola Babalola, took the students through a presentation on the opportunities the capital market provided for gaining financial independence through investment in different asset classes.
GMW is an annual global awareness-raising campaign that ensures that young people are financially aware and are gradually acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviours necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve financial well-being and financial resilience.
