Visa Inc. co-hosts 9th Annual Financial Literacy Summit with Chicago Fed
The 2015 Financial Literacy Summit, co-hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc., brought together senior international financial literacy experts from governments, the financial services industry, NGOs, the news media and academia to discuss improving millennials' financial literacy using mobile technology. The 2015 event's theme was "Improving Millennials' Financial Literacy with Mobile Technology."
Millennials, also known as Generation Y, refers to the demographic group who was born between the years of 1980 and the early 2000s that represents over two billion people worldwide – larger than any other generational category. Millennials are the first generation to mature alongside innovations of the current digital era, with instant access to nearly anything including money management tools at the palm of their hands. Identifying mobile technology resources to improve their financial literacy was the focus of the Financial Literacy Summit on April 15, 2015 in Chicago, IL.
The Summit also featured a keynote address by Thomas E. Perez, United States Secretary of Labor. Visit the Summit website to view the on-demand video: http://practicalmoneyskills.com/assets/videos/summit2015/
