On September 29, 2019 (Sunday), the Macau Institute of Financial Services (IFS), jointly with several public and private organizations, held the “Financial Education Day” in the garden close to “Iao Hon Market”, from 10:30am to 05:00pm.
During the event, there were two forums with the topics of “To plan and save for the future!” (in the morning session), and “How to be a smart investor?” (in the afternoon session). The speakers of the forums shared their expertise and views on relevant issues, as "How should the citizens well prepare themselves due to such issues of disaster and the aging population? How to make a right decision when facing different choice during different stages of life, no matter in personal or property aspects? In addition, there is a great relationship between financial management and savings investment, how can a smart investor build up good consumption habits? And how do people match the risks when choosing investment products?"…etc., for promoting the financial literacy among the citizens of Macau. That is the ultimate goal of financial education.
This year, the responsibility of the “Financial Education Day” rested on the IFS, the Monetary Authority of Macao (AMCM), the Social Security Fund (FSS), the Financial Intelligence Office (FIO), the Macau Association of Banks (ABM), the Macau Insurers Association (MIA), the Macau Financial Markets Association (MFMA), the Macau Insurance Agents and Brokers Association (AMSM), the Federation of Professional Insurance Intermediaries of Macau (FMPII), the Association of Macau Financial Employees (AEFM) and the Macau Insurance Intermediaries Association (MAIIA). Besides, the Judiciary Police was also invited to join the event for co-hosting one of the above forums.
