What is Financial Literacy

The National Financial Educators Council defines financial literacy as :
"Possessing the skills and knowledge on financial matters to confidently take effective action that best fulfils an individual`s personal, family and global community goals."

Financial literacy is the ability to understand how money works in the world. How someone manages to earn or make it, how that person manages it. he possession of knowledge and understanding of financial matters. Financial literacy is mainly used in connection with personal finance matters. Financial literacy often entails the knowledge of properly making decisions pertaining to certain personal finance areas like real estate, insurance, investing, saving (especially for college), tax planning and retirement. It also involves intimate knowledge of financial concepts like compound interest, financial planning, the mechanics of a credit card, advantageous savings methods, consumer rights, time value of money, etc.

The absence of financial literacy can lead to making poor financial decisions that can have adverse effects on the financial health of an individual. The advantages or disadvantages of variable or fixed rates is an example of an issue that will be easier to understand if an individual is financially literate.
