Bahrain Bourse, a self-regulated multi-asset marketplace, has announced Ahli United Bank (AUB) as a Gold Sponsor for the 4th Edition of the “Smart Investor” Program. The Smart Investor Program is a national awareness program organized in collaboration with INJAZ Bahrain, aimed at promoting financial and investment literacy among elementary school students in Bahrain.
Mrs. Narjes Jamal, Chief Operating Officer of Bahrain Bourse, commented: “It is with utmost pleasure to welcome Ahli United Bank on board as one of the official sponsors of the Smart Investor Program’s 4th Edition. AUB’s consistency and dedication in supporting Bahrain Bourse has contributed significantly to the community’s development by empowering youth, disseminating fundamental financial concepts, and helping us extend the program to benefit students across the Kingdom.”
On his part, Mr. David O’Loan, Deputy Group CEO, Treasury & Investments at AUB, stated: “It is an honour to be able to support such pivotal initiatives by Bahrain Bourse, which is dedicated to harnessing the financial and economic potential of the next generation. Our values at AUB are well aligned with those of Bahrain Bourse in that we recognise the importance of financial education for youngsters. Beginning early with financial education paves the way for an individual’s future financial capability, and ability to make sound financial decisions.”
The Smart Investor program, which launched in 2018, is a national awareness program in collaboration with INJAZ Bahrain targeting grade school students. The initiative aims to provide young students with basic financial concepts such as money management, savings, and smart financial planning through interactive edutainment activities to help them make sound financial decisions. The program consists of seven themed sessions designed to equip students with the following concepts: Thinking, Specifying, Planning, Execution, Saving, Progression, and Evaluation.
For the first time, the Smart Investor Program will launch a national challenge for participants in order to increase engagement and encourage students to participate by applying what they’ve learned during the program.
