Financial Fitness by iGrad

Are you financially fit?

Taking charge of your financial well-being can be as challenging (and rewarding) as going to the gym. And the biggest hurdle to getting it right is similar to getting physically fit: you have to break your own bad habits, overcome temptation, and stick to a schedule and a plan. 

Going to the gym won’t immediately rock your world, but if you stick with your training plan, the gradual improvements will pay off big in the long run, right? Well, managing your money works exactly the same way. And good news: it’s even easier than rolling out of bed for a personal training session at 6am!

The financial literacy courses offered in our Financial Fitness in partnership site with iGrad can be completed in any order at your own speed. Each one takes less than half an hour. You can also use the search tool to find videos, articles, and infographics on specific financial subjects of interest.
