Over 1.3 million people have attended the Financial Awareness Centre, which is just the first step on the path to achieving the global goal of universal financial awareness,” says Vladislav Solyony, Head of Educational Projects at Center-invest Bank.

All seminars and lectures at the Financial Awareness Centre are completely free of charge. Over eight years of operation, experts and volunteers at the Centres have:
