The Principles of Finance

Financial literacy is a critical skill for every citizen. It helps families safeguard their financial future, in turn reducing social inequality. It guides small companies in making business and financial decisions, helping them grow and challenge large corporations. However, financial literacy is rarely taught at schools; instead, the principles of finance are typically reserved for expensive MBA programmes. 

This lecture series aims to make essential financial skills available and accessible to everyone, and also demystify financial jargon so that we can understand financial documents, reports and articles. No finance background is necessary.
