Financial Literacy and Inclusion

The Bank recognizes the importance of financial literacy as a fundamental knowledge that everyone should have. As a bank, it is our role to help raise awareness and educate people on this topic in order to increase people’s capability to manage their finances and ultimately achieve improved financial well-being.

The Bank is using advanced technology to up-lift banking infrastructure, improve operational efficiency, promote financial inclusion, and improve overall banking service. The Bank promotes Cashless Society and National e-Payment through QR (Quick Response) Code and PromptPay solution through ttb touch and other digital channels.

Since 2017, financial literacy has been identified as one of the key components of sustainability at the Bank. Hence, Financial Literacy Program has been initiated to ensure the effectiveness of the Bank’s strategic focus on building a need-based proposition through advisory services in all customer segments. The program focuses on two areas: building internal competency of basic financial knowledge and understanding and contributing to industry-wide on financial literacy covering 4 main target groups namely employees, customers, community and regulators.

The first phase of the program has been initiated where financial literacy is aimed to build a strong relationship and strong financial competency for our clients. Appropriate activities and engagement approaches have been developed based on an understanding of the target group, different levels of maturity and the ground rule of no commercial ties with cross-sells during engagement with the related parties.

In 2019, another initiative of Financial Literacy Program is a mandatory financial literacy training for new employees. It has become a part of new employees’ orientation at the Bank. At the same time, internal trainings are being developed to increase our employees’ capability on financial literacy knowledge, attitude and behavior. These trainings, for example, e-learning in a format of a short movie with a set of quiz and activities that lead to measurable actions. The Bank believes before the Bank to provide financial services or actively engage with others about financial literacy, our employees must firstly be competent.

In addition, the Bank is a member of Thai Bankers’ Association (TBA), a platform for leading banks in Thailand to collaborate and cooperate with government agencies in formulating and implementing key economic and financial policies. The main objectives of the association are to improve competitiveness of Thai banking industry and to enhance people’s quality of life concerning society’s financial well-being as reflected in its 5-year plan, reflected in 7 strategic tracks as follows:

  1. Digitization of banking and next generation payments infrastructure
  2. Financial inclusion and supporting real economy
  3. Financial Literacy for Thai Society
  4. Industry Code of Conduct
  5. Preparing for AEC and regional integration
  6. Human Capital Development
  7. Legal and regulatory enablement

Though all Association members contribute to all of these 7 tracks, the Bank in particular takes the lead sponsorship role on the track regarding Financial Literacy for Thai Society.

We strongly believe that building knowledge on financial literacy and starting with the right financial habits such as saving, are the first step toward financial well-being. Hence, ttb touch has been upgraded to incorporate the Savings Goal and Savings Alarm features, encouraging and making things easier for our customers to start saving, and thus, creating a good habit.
