Bankia's chairman, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, and the General Director of the Savings Bank Foundation (Funcas), Carlos Ocaña, have signed an agreement through which the financial entity will join the "Funcas Financial Education Stimulation Programme".

Through this agreement, both institutions aim to work together to improve the level and quality of citizens' financial education through a new programme called "Bankademia", which will tackle training in an innovative way.

The "Funcas Financial Education Stimulation Programme", with a total of three million euros and launched this year by Funcas and the CECA, contributes to finance the financial education activities carried out by the entities forming part of the association, which include Bankia.

The bank's training programme will have two main modules, one for education and another for consultancy. Classes may also be in person or over the internet.

The subjects to be taught will be, amongst others, finance, housing, savings and investment, benefits and subsidies, taxes, employment, family economy, SMEs and the agriculture sector.

Bankia's chairman, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, has underlined that "we are very happy to join the Funcas programme and have set ourselves the ambitious goal of being an entity of reference in terms of education. The agreement is a sign of Bankia's commitment to society, through initiatives that contribute to improving the level of financial education and help in the creation of new projects".

For his part, Funcas' General Director, Carlos Ocaña, reiterated that part of the Spanish population has a lack of financial skills that must be reduced. "We are convinced that this ambitious initiative will help a large number of citizens make better decisions when it comes to managing their money", he concluded.
