CFPB Launches Financial Education Exchange

“Do you help consumers take charge of their financial lives?” If so, then the recently launched Financial Education Exchange from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is the resource for you.

The CFPB FinEx provides opportunities for financial educators to learn by accessing the latest CFPB research, tools, and resources; to pledge not only to use the CFPB tools and resources, but to provide (voluntary) feedback as well; and to connect through email updates and invitations, and webinars. The platform aims to show you ways to improve the financial well-being of the people you serve – and it’s free and publicly accessible.

Don’t miss out on the new Resource Inventory for Financial Educators available on the page. This inventory is a list of CFPB tools and resources that you can use and download for free and includes both practical tools you can use with your clients, and research reports on financial education and consumer decision-making.

Visit the CFPB Resources for Financial Educators webpage to learn more: www.consumerfinance.gov/adult-financial-education. To sign up, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
