An understanding of financial terms, concepts and practices that matures to a depth commensurate with the competence level required to match the individual’s circumstances. This simply means having the knowledge necessary to manage your own responsibilities. Not everyone needs the same level of financial competence or literacy. But everyone should be financially competent to accomplish what their personal responsibilities require or likely could require.
