We are, therefore, pleased to host the bright young leaders at Children’s International School in commemoration of Global Money Week 2021 and look forward to empowering children and young people to not only learn to manage their money wisely, but also to transfer this knowledge to their families and communities.”

Earn, the Head of Department, Market Surveillance, Abimbola Babalola took the students through a presentation on the opportunities the capital market provides for those aiming to gain financial independence through investment in different asset classes.

This led to an insightful interactive session between Babalola and the students who were later given the privilege to sound the digital closing gong and bring the day’s trading to a close.
Global Money Week (GMW), organised by the OECD International Network on Financial Education (OECD/INFE), is an annual global awareness-raising campaign that ensures that that young people are financially knowledgeable and gradually acquire the skills, attitude and behaviors necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve financial well-being and financial resilience.
