GUTCU hosts 3rd Financial Literacy Quiz

The GUT Cooperative Credit Union is once again hosting its National Financial Literacy Quiz for Secondary Schools. The quiz, which began in 2014, aims to broaden the awareness among students on areas of budgeting, saving, investing, economics and current financial news.

“Financial literacy leads to empowerment,” said Carl Andall, President of the Credit Union. “The timing of the quiz to explore topics of budgeting, investing and finance fits into the global experience of harsh economic conditions. But at the end of the day, we want persons to remember that it’s not necessarily about how much money you earn, but what you can do with what you have.”
