Not only global trends suggest but youth in India are also grappling with intense financial management issues.

With high income rate and negligible savings today’s youth are unprepared for future days of retirement; college drop-out rates rise due to lack of understanding as to how to manage loans. While billions are spent in consumer marketing various products like credit cards, home equity products & car loans etc.., a negligible amount is spent on financial education, tools needed to deal with financial decisions ahead in life.
