When an established bank takes the time out to equip as many as 400 average citizens in the hair-raising and technical rigors of savings and investment, its fair to say they are doing good in the neighborhood.
Well, the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) recently graduated the latest crop of an investments and savings course it offers in a partnership with the ABI Bank.
The course has been running since as far back as 2006 and has trained approximately 400 persons, to date. “Initially, it was bankers, primarily; now it’s just about anyone who’s interested in learning how to manage money.”
Maybe this is an idea banks across the Caribbean could adopt? Maybe.
