Do you have a child who might be interested in the stock market, but all they know is an internet meme about “stonks” and "diamond hands"? The Egyptian Stock Exchange (EGX) is looking to teach the coming generation about investment with their first collection of educational children’s books, titled ‘The Five Investors’. Get them a tiny suit and tie and they’ll be all set.
The EGX aren’t just targeting the toddlers, though. They are also offering lectures and seminars for older university students, and will distribute educational brochures to raise awareness of the fundamentals and benefits of trading on the stock exchange.
Numerous training programmes will run across universities in Egypt that will include everything from theoretical lectures to hands-on stimulation programmes. A joint committee between the EGX and the participating university will be formed to establish the mechanisms and producers necessary to roll out this educational campaign effectively. To oversee these activities, EGX has set up a specialized department dedicated to financial literacy and tracking the progress of the campaign.
