The Malta Business Bureau (MBB) and HSBC Malta Foundation launched INVEST+, a project seeking to improve levels of financial literacy in Malta through mentoring sessions and workshops on finance, accounting, savings and investment. The objective is not to turn participants into financial experts, but to give them an understanding of crucial concepts, therefore allowing them to become financially independent on a personal and professional level.

MBB President Simon De Cesare said that “As a business-representative organisation, the Malta Business Bureau has embarked on various distinct initiatives, covering different policy areas, to help bring together the EU vision and interests of the Maltese business community”.

Speaking on behalf of the HSBC Malta Foundation, CEO Andrew C. Beane said that the Foundation’s support to MBB is “an investment which is part of a much broader, and deeper commitment to developing ‘Future Skills’ – a key part of the bank’s updated sustainability strategy”.

“The ‘Future Skills’ campaign focuses not only on financial literacy but also on employment. It is a concerted effort to help people in Malta and Gozo acquire and put into practice the knowledge they need to build a successful future,” he said.

The first INVEST+ mentoring sessions will be organised in October and November, in conjunction with the Malta CSR Institute. Interested individuals are encouraged to request an application form by sending an email to admin@mbb.org.mt

The INVEST+ Project is run by the Malta Business Bureau in collaboration with the HSBC Malta Foundation.
