About us

The FamilyMI project, created by the Global Thinking Foundation in collaboration with the Foundation for Financial Education and Saving, together with the Polytechnic University of Milan, arises from the need to offer support to the debate on financial developments and on the so-called “financial inclusion” for the Millennial families (born between 1980 and 2000) of the Milan area and province. By offering an explanatory and exhaustive means to reorganize the concepts that constitute today’s finance, we intend to include those who fail to independently access the most common financial perspectives, in terms of services and facilities normally dedicated to groups at risks such as Millennials families.

FamilyMI offers an information path in an innovative and intuitive way. The user begins this journey with an online questionnaire on the main concepts of savings and conscious investment, consisting of seven tests, each dedicated to one topic: Bank Account; Insurance; Bonds; Shares; Investment Funds, open-ended investment companies and ETFs; Changes; Certificates.

The outcome of the single test is linked, as described below, to videos/animations (called Training Pills and Testimonial Pills) of different duration and content, to inform the same user in an engaging and interactive way.
