‘Why employees must be financially literate’
The rising cases of COVID-19 may be putting more employees in jeopardy, unless a critical intervention is made to equip them with financial literacy skills.
This was the view of financial experts at a briefing to announce a three-day online Millionaire Employee Conference, themed ‘Where to make and invest money in 2021’ slated for 25th-27th February 2021.
The Convener and Chief Executive Officer, The Jimi Tewe Company, Jimi Tewe said the conference was designed to assist working professionals in Nigeria and diaspora to understand how to better multiply their income by investing.
He noted that 2020 brought a lot of uncertainty to the world, with so many people losing their job and the future of work shifting from what it used to be, which in turn is redefining the status quo.
He said the conference seeks to help employees better on how to create multiple streams of income and also know where to invest in 2021.
According to him, over 300 people have joined the community, and hopefully before the end of the year, the population of the community will rise to 10,000.
“The community has 10 facilitators, who are well accomplished in their fields, to mentor community members. What we do is to basically provide an all-free platform, where people join and what they need to do is to be part of the community to go through a book written by me, ‘The millionaire employee’. Having gone through the book, which will put them through the foundation, they will have free access to the community for one year.”
The Head, Fixed Income, Chapel Hill Denham, Dipo Ajayi, said the aim of the millionaire employee is to help participants identify and tap opportunities. “There are lot of opportunities flying around, but the major problem is that people are not aware and they are unable to identify them. We are going to teach people how to manage and make money, dissect investment and the rigorous risk involved.
“Our focus areas are international real estate opportunities, identifying investment opportunities, real estate investment in Nigeria, forex trading and local and international money market opportunities.”
