The World Savings Day was established on October 31, 1924, during the 1st International Savings Bank Congress (World Society of Savings Banks) in Milano, Italy. The Italian Professor Filippo Ravizza declared this day the "International Saving Day" on the last day of the congress.
World Savings Day or World Thrift Day was established to inform people all around the world about the idea of saving their money in a bank rather than keeping it under their mattress.
As countries across the globe mark the World Savings Day, the Nigerian financial industry is taking up the mantle of increasing financial literacy and awareness among the teeming populace of the country.
Particularly, this year’s celebration is being directed at increasing financial education and awareness among the Nigerian youths. Rising from the Bankers Committee meeting held in Lagos, the committee disclosed that as part of the 2016 celebration, each bank will adopt two schools from each of the six geopolitical zones of the country.
