WHAT WE DO: 

Visa Inc. is a global payments technology company that connects consumers, businesses, financial institutions and governments in more than 200 countries and territories to fast, secure and reliable digital currency.

On Monday, April 23, 2012 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Visa will co-host the sixth annual Financial Literacy and Education Summit with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. This year’s Summit, International Solutions to Improving Financial Literacy, will address how governments and financial education leaders can work together to improve the state of financial literacy globally.  The Summit will also feature the presentation of national and international financial education research.
