Financial Capability: Combining Assets and Abilities
The Center for Social Development is actively engaged in building a body of evidence in financial capability, defined as both the knowledge to make optimal financial decisions and access to appropriate and beneficial financial services. Our current initiative—the Financial Capability & Asset Building​ (FCAB) project—focuses on financial capability across the life cycle and the inclusion of all individuals.

The aim of FCAB is two-fold: to underscore the importance of both financial capability and opportunity, and to reintroduce financial well-being into social work.
