Young Leaders Program
Online Seminar on Personal Finance

Registration is now open!


Personal financial management is a subject matter that is often considered to be of minor importance in school curricula. We think this is wrong. Surprises abound in life regarding your financial wellbeing. Unexpected car problems or medical bills may occur at any given time, usually when it is most inconvenient. Tuition fees can be a long-term financial burden. A comfortable retirement requires sound financial planning, preferably starting as soon as you start your professional career. 

When you learn how to start managing your money properly, you’ll get a better understanding of where and how you are spending it. This can help you keep within your budget and increase your savings, important stepping-stones to achieve your financial goals and independence.

FNF is supporting young students between the ages of 15 and 22 with a basic knowledge about personal finance. We’d like to give you the opportunity to learn from experts in the field, discuss and connect with and learn from peers from all over Asia.

During our Young Leaders Programme Personal Finance Workshop you will learn about:

  • Consumption vs investment
  • The need for investment
  • Main types of investments
  • What are assets?
  • How to diversify and how to create a financial portfolio
  • Financial risks
  • Labour market and inflation
  • Stocks vs bonds
  • and much MORE~!
