To foster the next generation of financially informed citizens, it is imperative to reach out with appropriate financial education to the youth of Switzerland.
The Rise of Generation Z also known as the New Media Generation (young people who have not lived in an age without the Internet), who source almost all their knowledge online, need to understand how to select online financial information carefully, so as to be discerning and not be vulnerable to incorrect information and bad investing advice.
In the new digital world it is the crucial responsibility for each person to take control of their own finances from a young age. We are all faced with increasing sophistication of financial products. Therefore the knowledge and skills necessary to manage day-to-day finances should be acquired early in order to make prudent investments and plan for future needs.
At 18 years of age, young citizens can open a trading account, and some people even receive shares early in life from grandparents. The new generation needs to be ready for this responsibility! Educating young people early on financial literacy has many benefits.
SUISHARE thus has a Youth Chapter in order to cover these important needs.
