Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center

Founded in 2011 at the George Washington University School of Business, the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC), formerly known as the Global Center for Financial Literacy (GCFL), has positioned itself to be the world’s leading center for financial literacy research and policy. Through rigorous scholarship and research, wide-reaching education, and global policy and services, the Center works with partners in Washington, DC, throughout the United States, and across the globe to raise the level of financial knowledge. GFLEC builds on more than ten years of academic research by Professor Annamaria Lusardi, an early contributor to financial literacy as a field of study. By virtue of its location in the heart of Washington, DC, the Center is positioned to directly influence policy makers.
