Vantage Partners with UNESCO New Delhi for Financial Inclusion in India

In the coming years, Vantage aims to leverage its financial and technological expertise to support UNESCO’s educational initiatives in India, increasing the accessibility of education and bringing the benefits of education to those who need it the most.

The international multi-asset trading platform has a strong focus on a new ESG approach, from day-to-day office activities to disaster relief initiatives around the world.

As part of this partnership, Vantage is supporting the “State of Education Report for India, 2022 – Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education”, covering a number of issues relevant to the intersection of AI and education, including the potential of artificial intelligence to empower teachers and improve our understanding of the learning process and towards financial inclusion.

“AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India”

Eric Falt, Director and UNESCO Representative in Bhutan, India, Maldives and Sri Lanka, said: “While the world may be on the fence about AI, it is certain that the is here to stay. With the rise of ICT and digital banking platforms, AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India. Financial education and skills are key to improving the economic and social well-being of people, especially women. With this in mind, we are very happy to partner with Vantage who share our commitments. »

Marc Despallieres, Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, said: “Our global footprint and presence in emerging markets has provided us with a unique perspective on the issues facing our communities. We aim to foster a long-term strategic partnership with UNESCO that is built on the foundations of our shared values ​​– inclusion and equity. As a financial services provider, supporting emerging technological developments in education, such as AI in education and digital literacy initiatives to students and learners in India, was a natural first step to undertake this educational path.

In the coming years, Vantage aims to leverage its financial and technological expertise to support UNESCO’s educational initiatives in India, increasing the accessibility of education and bringing the benefits of education to those who need it the most.

Vantage’s ESG journey includes UNHCR fundraising, blood donation, climate change, women’s empowerment
