The Good Practices, Good Accounts website is the banking sector's first joint financial education project. The aim of this didactic initiative is to provide the public with useful and easily accessible information on bank services using practical and realistic examples similar to many real-life situations that families can identify with.
The idea behind its construction is to facilitate people's involvement and encourage financial attitudes and behaviour leading to informed, responsible decisions.
The project is aimed at the general public and its contents were created by the APB Financial Education Working Group. The group consists of 11 banks in addition to the APB and IFB/ISGB. Theis common action strategy of the sector is aligned with the strategy set out in the National Financial Education Plan (PNFF) of the National Council of Financial Supervisors.
The "Boas Práticas, Boas Contas" is part of the strategy approved by the APB Board so that the APB and its Members could play an active role in the public's financial education and contribute to a better understanding of the workings and importance of the financial system in the country's economy.
