Aberdeen and Financial Literacy

At Aberdeen, we are keen to promote financial literacy and education. From unique sponsorships to creative multi-media, we are taking steps to highlight the importance of financial literacy within our local and national communities in fun and engaging ways. 

“What is Money?”

What is money anyway? It is an integral part of our everyday lives, but do we really understand why our currency has value? Aberdeen, along with the Warren Enskat Group and New York University, created a short video that asks you to think about where money comes from and why it has value.

Important Information

Knowledge@Wharton High School Investment Challenge

Since 2011, Aberdeen has fostered financial literacy and professional development through fun and hands-on partnerships with high schools across the United States.

Through our sponsorship of the “Knowledge@Wharton High School Investment Challenge”, high school students gain access to an innovative and real-time securities trading platform. They gain real-world context and mentorship from Aberdeen portfolio managers and other employees.

Over the course of the competition, students develop communication, teamwork and analytical skills as they formulate investment strategies and manage hypothetical investment portfolios.

Operation Hope

We are always looking for ways to make positive and lasting impacts on our local communities. As part of financial literacy month (April) and our wider financial literacy initiative, Aberdeen participated in Operation Hope’s “BOOF in a Day” program on April 25, 2014

Aberdeen employees taught workshops on budgeting, credit and investment basics at a Philadelphia high school.
