Market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) will impart financial education and investments skills to executives, home-makers and even school children, to spread awareness about sound investment practices and promote financial inclusion. Sebi will organise workshops to train target groups including executives, home makers and young investors and students.
Besides, imparting financial education for middle income group and school children is also on Sebi’s plans.
It has trained and certified 40 Resource Persons (RPs) to act as faculty and speakers in the workshops to teach target groups in Western India.
“It (Sebi) is in the process of developing RPs for other regions…,” the market regulator said.
Any eligible person interested to act as a Resource Person may apply online at the website of National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM), Sebi said.
Besides investor education, financial education is also considered important for promoting financial inclusion particularly in developing countries.
As a part of its statutory mandate, Sebi has been undertaking a variety of activities through different modes to promote investor education and awareness.
