The webinar themed “Learn, Grow, Protect Your Finances,” will be moderated by TV personality, Mildred Tuhaise and is set to take place on 2nd November at 7:00pm.
The webinar will play host to renowned financial services industry experts in a panel discussion that’ll have them share key insights on selected topics aimed at driving financial empowerment for Ugandans.

The panelists will address issues including but not limited to improving Ugandans’ ability to manage their money well, protection against risks and fraud, financial skills development, and change in mindset and attitude towards money generation and management.
The Bank of Uganda has forefronted the development of the second strategy for Financial Literacy in Uganda (2019-2024) following the successful implementation of the first strategy for Financial Literacy (2013-2017).
The vision is that Ugandans have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to manage money well since financial literacy has been recognized as a critical factor in improving quality of life and enhancing financial inclusion in Uganda.
It is based on this initiative that PostBank and UAP Old Mutual are partnering to not only impart financial literacy but to also avail competitive insurance products to Ugandans, some of which will be unveiled during the webinar.
It’s a must-attend for anyone seeking to acquire practical knowledge on issues concerning their finances.
