Do you work in the personal finance or investment sector? Gain a better understanding of personal finance and the tools which can help you make sound financial decisions at our one day conference.
Tuesday 14th November, 2017 at Church House Conference Centre, Deans Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3NZ.
The True Potential Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance (True Potential PUFin) is a pioneering Centre of Excellence for research in the development of personal financial capabilities. True Potential LLP have committed to a five-year programme of financial support for the Centre totalling £1.4 million.
Given the current economic climate, better financial capability is essential if individuals are expected to manage their finances effectively. Recent research demonstrates that the under-40s are less financially capable than their elders and there is also a need to help inform financial service providers, regulators, influencers and government. True Potential PUFin is the Open University Business School’s mechanism to deliver what the public and industry need.
