The Guidelines were developed by the OECD International Network on Financial Education (INFE), comprising now representatives from over 110 economies.
Following the endorsement by G20 Leaders in 2012 of the High-level Principles on National Strategies for Financial Education, these Guidelines are ultimately expected to be part of a policy handbook on the implementation of national strategies for financial education called for by G20 Leaders in 2013.
The draft Guidelines were made available for public consultation between 18 November 2013 and 10 January 2014 and were then revised based on comments received. The Guidelines were approved by the OECD/INFE Technical Committee in May 2014 and by the OECD bodies responsible for financial education (the Committee on Financial Markets and the Insurance and Private Pensions Committee) in August 2014. The final version of the guidelines was included in the progress report on the implementation of national strategies for financial education transmitted to G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors at their meeting in Cairns in September 2014 and to G20 Leaders at their Brisbane Summit in November 2014.
The Guidelines are aimed at being disseminated and actively used by financial authorities and other stakeholders involved in financial education, which are also welcome to inform the OECD/INFE Secretariat of their use.
