Financial Education

Finance for All Award for the Year 2018

Finance for Mortals, the financial education project promoted by the Santander Financial Institute (SanFi), the international center of the UCEIF Foundation and which is under the patronage of Banco Santander, has become the best financial education initiative in 2018, in the category of implementation of the Financial Education Plan, of the Finance for All Award, promoted by the Bank of Spain and the National Securities Market Commission.

This is one of the most important financial education programs in Spain. Promoted by Santander Bank, the program was launched in 2014 with a clear objective: to improve society’s weak understanding of how finance works.

To achieve this aim, efforts were concentrated on:


The Finance for Mortals web offers a wide range of resources, from the simple “eco-financial” explanations of national and international concepts today, access to information and tools to help with common financial tasks, to analysis and articles by prestigious authors and experts.

Moreover, it is backed up by too great tools: RetoFxM, a question and answer game which puts our financial knowledge to the test; and Wikifinances, a dictionary to explain more than 1100 economic terms in a clear and accessible manner for all publics. Moreover, both are available in App form for iOS and Android, where you can access a wide selection of concepts organized by categories.

In the Classroom

The FxM project is responsible for around 2000 training sessions to date: a network of 750 volunteers, in the most part Santander Bank employees with sharing their expert knowledge with more than 17000 participants. This means more than 47000 hours of training across the whole of Spain, catering for a wide range of different publics, though paying special attention to the young and those in danger of social exclusion.

Present across Spain

Finance for Mortals is to be found in all Spanish regional autonomies through the training sessions of the FxM Acts program.
