Financial education as a mission
Spain was one of the countries that was most seriously affected by the 2008 financial crisis. The country struggled with high unemployment, a fall in GDP and the collapse of the property market. Set against this backdrop, sound financial education seems all the more important. This is also the way OVB advisor Luis Ignacio Fernández Irigoyen sees it. His goal is to help the Spanish population get a better understanding of financial issues, thereby giving them the capacity to make the right decisions when it comes to providing for their futures.
The more the better
Luis is always looking for new people to join him in his mission. “The bigger my team, the more people we can reach and educate financially,” says Luis. His only regret is that he didn’t start working for OVB sooner. “Although you can start a career with this company at any age, I know that I would have been even more successful today if I had started working for OVB earlier.” This is also why Luis strongly urges young people in particular, who may still be at university or looking for their first position, to consider coming to work for OVB. “It’s not easy to find a company that offers so many advantages. Joining OVB was one of the best decisions of my life.”
