Purpose

To provide pedagocial sessions to allow young professionals to know everything about investment to increase their financial resilience


Overview

The ABC of Investment was revamped from the ABC of Stockexchange Investment, following results of a survey by the previous team. Feedback from previous sessions showed us that young professionals lacked knowledge about investment to know which tools and strategies to use. Building their financial literacy would help them for this prupose, but also to increase their financial resilience in a Post Covid-19 economy.


Results

1- We met our target of more than 200 participants
2- Participants showed their increased knowledge in a quiz which followed the sessions
3- The JCI brand visibility increased with the PR strategy (radio interventions, press article)
4- We managed to carry out the sessions amidst a pandemic, by conduction them all online but in a pedagogical and interactive manner to ensure engagement


Recommendations

1- To make the event a hybrid one
2- To diversify the pool of speakers
