FINANCIAL EDUCATION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

The Group is particularly attentive to the need to provide financial education to young people. It designs and implements numerous training programmes. In Morocco, BMCI has participated in a national event since 2012 called “Financial Education Week for Children and Young People”. During this event, the BMCI teams work together to familiarise young people with banking and financial concepts. In 2014, during open days organised in 48 branches, more than 3,000 college and high school students received training at “Finance Days” organised by the bank’s employees. In Italy, more than 5,000 classes of children aged between 9 and 11 received budgeting classes as part of BNL’s EduCare programme in 2014. Launched in 2008, the programme offers a range of budget-management modules to clients and non-clients. This was expanded yet again this year with the launch of the EduCare school (EduCare Scuola) which incorporates a focus on digital subjects and classes given outside BNL branches in 2013. Through its “Securities Services for Education” programme, BNP Paribas Securities Services supported young people in a dozen countries to help with schooling and mastering economic subjects.

BANKING FOR CLIENTS WITH SPECIFIC NEEDS

More than 20 associations and employees of BNP Paribas Fortis with disabilities communicate through a collaborative platform created in 2014. Together, they develop services adapted to their specific needs and those linked to age. They also seek ways to ensure a better client experience. This work is an extension of the measures taken since 2012 to facilitate access for persons with reduced mobility in branches. They include installing audio ATMs or sending account statements in Braille to clients with visual impairments.
