How can mobile technology improve financial literacy for today's young adults?
Millennials, also known as Generation Y, refers to the demographic group who was born between the years of 1980 and the early 2000s that represents over two billion people worldwide – larger than any other generational category. Millennials are the first generation to mature alongside innovations of the current digital era, with instant access to nearly anything including money management tools at the palm of their hands. Identifying mobile technology resources to improve their financial literacy will be the focus of the Financial Literacy Summit on April 15, 2015 in Chicago, IL. The ninth annual Financial Literacy Summit, co-hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc., brought together senior international financial literacy experts from governments, the financial services industry, NGOs, the news media and academia to discuss improving millennials' financial literacy using mobile technology.
