Butterfield offers a free course on money management and financial literacy for college and university students between the ages of 18 and 30.
A spokesperson said: “The one hour duration Butterfield 101 Financial Management Program will take place virtually at 6 p.m. on Thursday August 4 and will be delivered by members of the Retail Banking and Consumer Lending teams. These professionals will provide an introduction to the world of finance, equipping students with the knowledge to develop good financial habits.
“Participants will learn practical skills, including how to create a budget and how to set financial goals, as well as practical knowledge and tips, including advice on different financial products and the importance of a good credit rating.
“To participate, students must be recently enrolled in full-time higher education [undergraduate or postgraduate]. Registration is free and can be done online before 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 4, by visiting here.”
Shawnette Griffin, Head of Retail Banking and Operations for Butterfield in Bermuda, said, “We are delighted to offer the Butterfield 101 Financial Management program to full-time university and college students. Summer vacation provides a great opportunity for them to take stock of their finances and improve their financial literacy before the start of the next school year, creating good habits to prepare for future financial success.
At the end of the course, each student will be assigned a Butterfield savings account with online and mobile banking, and will receive a Butterfield Debit Mastercard® and a Butterfield Mastercard credit card, with a pre-approved limit of 1 $000.
