FINANCIAL LITERACY
In a very broad sense, financial literacy is simply having the financial knowledge and skills to better understand your own financial situation and how that can be impacted (in both a positive and a negative way) by all the financial choices (big or small) you make. Financial literacy is necessary to make financially responsible decisions—choices that are essential to our everyday lives.
There are a wealth of benefits for taking the time to become financially literate.

The greatest benefit is that financially literate people are better prepared for the future. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we never know what can happen and even wealthy people can suddenly find themselves in a financial crisis. However, if you’re prepared, the probability that you and your family can withstand a temporary financial roadblock is much greater.

Financially literate people are also less vulnerable to fraud since they have a good understanding of their finances and take the time to make informed financial decisions.
A well-informed investor is able to take better decisions, reducing the risk and the chances of leading to a large loss of money and / or creating a debt, which in some cases may lead to bankruptcy.
Financial education is especially needed today, due to the constant emergence of new financial products and services, the rapid pace and volatility of today’s capital markets, and globalization, which have multiplied opportunities but also risks for investors. Furthermore, the financial needs of the investors themselves have become more complex, making it necessary and imperative to train them on the proper management of their money.

The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, or CySEC for short, is the independent public supervisory Authority responsible for the supervision of the investment services market in Cyprus. Having adopted the promotion of financial literacy and investor education among its key strategic objectives, CySEC undertakes various initiatives in this area. One of them is the creation of this dedicated website space to offer a gateway for investors to obtain reliable and impartial financial education on matters that related to investments and the investment services market, as well as other areas under CySEC regulation and supervision.
We aim to enrich, update and upgrade the Financial Literacy space often, so keep checking on it.
