A recent report by NOW: Pensions and the Pension Policy Institute shows that underpensioned groups have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Personal Finance Index reveals a similar situation in the USA.

In this webinar, we speak to Annamaria Lusardi about financial literacy – the knowledge and skills that allow people to make important financial decisions – and how it can impact financial wellbeing. We also discuss what can be done to improve financial literacy.
