As part of its strong investor- and customer-orientation, in February 2010, Moneylife set up a non-profit organization, Moneylife Foundation. The Foundation is engaged in spreading financial literacy and works towards safe and fair market practices through workshops, round table meetings, white papers, research, advocacy, awareness campaigns, grievance redressal, counselling, etc.
The Foundation has set up Moneylife Knowledge Centre, a lecture hall-cum-reading room with access to hundreds of books and magazines on business, economics and finance. The Foundation works at enhancing financial literacy at the grassroots level through a combination of focused workshops on issues based on real-life situations and experiences (how to be smart with your money, importance of credit histories, wills and nomination, senior-citizen issues, etc), lectures by experts, panel discussions and focused group meetings to debate specific issues or regulatory changes.
In this short period, the Foundation has worked with mutual funds (Axis MF, ICICI MF), banks (ICICI Bank, Union Bank, Bank of Baroda), intermediaries (Cams, Karvy) and CIBIL and has conducted over 100 seminars and conferences. This record is unmatched by any other NGO. The activities of Moneylife Foundation are now larger than that of all recognized investor organizations put together.
