BSAS Financial Literacy Intitiative



 

What?

The Boston Security Analysts Society’s Financial Literacy Initiative is a community outreach program designed to consolidate valuable financial literacy content and make it widely available as a resource to the general investing public.
  • Over 100 BSAS members – all financial professionals – volunteer to develop, market, and distribute educational modules to improve financial literacy 
  • The initiative is topic-driven and targets people of all ages and backgrounds
  • Content is designed to help people facing important financial decisions (buying a car, buying a home, investing for retirement, financial budgeting, etc.) 
  • The program addresses issues such as Personal Finance, Basics of Investing, Retirement, Bonds vs. Equities, Choosing a Bank, and more

Where?


Our Financial Literacy volunteers are interested in helping wherever they can make an impact.
  • We partner with organizations who serve well-matched audiences
  • We have relationships with local colleges and non-profit adult educational organizations
  • We partner with the State of Massachusetts Treasurer's Office to present and serve as Money Mentors at their Money Conferences

Why?

Financial illiteracy is rampant among both young and seasoned professionals.
  • At BSAS, one of our key missions is to better serve a broader investing community
  • We challenged ourselves to create financial education resources that reach beyond our members – to bridge the financial literacy gap and help people land on their feet
  • Our goal is help the investing public be more financially savvy
