This guide provides resources relevant to Personal Financial Literacy: Income, Spending, Saving, Investing, and Protection of wealth and assets

Financial Literacy Defined

Financial literacy is the ability to understand and effectively use various financial skills, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing. When you are financially literate, you have the foundation of a relationship with money, and it is a lifelong journey of learning. The earlier you start, the better off you will be, because education is the key to success when it comes to money.
