GFLEC to Partner with Quebec Financial Regulator

March 12, 2018

The Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC), housed at the George Washington University School of Business, has signed a letter of intent to cooperate with the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF Quebec) on projects of mutual interest.

“GFLEC is delighted to enter a formal partnership with the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF Quebec),” Annamaria Lusardi, Denit Trust Chair of Economics and Accountancy, and GFLEC academic director, said. “We look forward to working together to promote financial education for families and individuals across Canada, the United States, and the world. Government institutions like AMF Quebec play an indispensable role in advancing financial literacy.”

The GFLEC-AMF Quebec agreement, signed last month, specifies their intent to identify specific collaborations. The purpose of the partnership is to help amplify the financial literacy and financial education work of both organizations to better achieve their shared goals.

Founded in 2011 at the George Washington University School of Business, the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) has positioned itself to be the world’s leading center for financial literacy research and policy. Through rigorous scholarship and research, wide-reaching education policy and services, the Center works with partners in Washington, D.C., throughout the United States, and across the globe to raise the level of financial knowledge.
