The Financial Educator is a new professional profile with a great future projection

Life is full of decisions with financial significance. We all ask ourselves questions like what is better to rent or buy? How do I finance the purchase of the car? or when the time comes… Will the retirement pension be enough? Citizens when faced with these decisions are often insecure, they must be aware of their consequences and learn to value them.

It’s the same with finances, you need someone to guide you, a financial educator to help you shape your financial future and improve your relationship with money . You will see that in a short time, you will assimilate basic concepts related to saving or investing, you will learn the importance of preparing a household budget, or the danger of having excessive debt, concepts such as emergency fund, income protection or retirement provision , will help you start the path towards achieving the goals you set for yourself. The figure of the financial educator will play the role of the “personal trainer” and, in the same way, will accompany you in the process, giving you that security and confidence that you are looking for when making financial decisions.

According to the OECD, financial education is the process by which citizens improve their own understanding of financial products and their risks, can make informed decisions, or, where appropriate, know where to turn to improve their economic well-being.

The financial educator is the figure in charge of fulfilling that purpose, offering citizens the appropriate conditions to carry out their vital objectives, through the correct management of their savings, their debts, and their own economic security.…
