In recognition of the fact that financial literacy could be a poverty alleviation tool that can aid the building of a more sustainable financial future for society and also develop the required expertise to adequately scale up the Nigerian financial market to global standards, FMDQ Group has included the next generation in its financial market education agenda, via its Flagship Corporate Responsibility Programme, FMDQ Next Generation Financial Markets Empowerment Programme (FMDQ-Next). This is a learning and development initiative aimed at promoting financial market awareness and literacy among students across all levels (primary, secondary, tertiary), as well as fresh graduates within the country.
The latest addition is the FMDQ-Next Financial Literacy Book, which aims to complement the repertoire of FMDQ-Next Initiatives, towards closing the financial literacy gap in society. The Book provides a simple, yet informative and entertaining approach to complex financial market concepts, personal finance and basic economics. Exercises and games are also featured at the end of every chapter to reinforce key learnings. The FMDQ-Next Financial Literacy Book is a fun, educative and inspiring tool for every reader.
The Programme is implemented via Teach-a-class Sessions – which involve fun, educational and interactive financial markets exercises and activities; Excursions and Tours – where participants are given the opportunity to visit FMDQ Group, as well as local and international financial markets institutions; Trading Simulation Exercises – where participants learn how to trade a variety of securities and instruments in the financial market through the management of a virtual portfolio in a simulated environment; Summer Camp Programmes – a highly engaging programme specifically for primary and secondary school students who learn about the financial market over the summer holidays.
