What is pfeg?

pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) is part of Young Enterprise & together we are the UK's leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. pfeg was set up in 2000 by a group of individuals, primarily from the finance sector trade associations, concerned that financial education was not being taught coherently in schools. pfeg became part of Young Enterprise in September 2014.

pfeg's mission is to ensure that all young people leaving school are equipped with the confidence, skills and knowledge they need in financial matters to take part fully in society.  Read more about pfeg
