Young Money – A New Brand for Financial Education

Young Money (formerly pfeg), a new brand for financial education, will be announced today at the annual Centres of Excellence conference. Young Money follows the merger of pfeg into Young Enterprise in 2014. Under the two brands, Young Enterprise and Young Money will continue to help students learn how to earn and manage money.

Young Money covers a full range of financial education programmes and services. Whilst there will be changes to the look and feel of logos, support materials and the website, the range and quality of provision will continue to support educators in developing and delivering high quality financial education.

The announcement will be made at the annual Centres of Excellence conference to over 170 teachers. The conference is supported by the Money Advice Service and marks the launch of Financial Capability Week 2017.

Last year Young Money worked with over 1,000 schools and colleges, providing over 5,000 developmental opportunities for educators, helping to build a sustainable financial education provision for young people.

 

Michael Mercieca, Chief Executive of Young Money said:

“I am very pleased to announce our new Young Money brand. We will continue to be a trusted and valued provider of knowledge, resources and training to anyone teaching children and young people how to manage money. Young Money remains part of the Young Enterprise family, however having a separate, focused brand for financial education will support the growth of our activities in this area.”
