Introducing finEDge

We’re excited to present finEDge, a comprehensive financial education program for high school students.

The Magnetar Capital | UChicago Financial Education Initiative is financially empowering students through high-quality materials, evidence-based approaches, teacher community, and scholarly expertise. Learn more >
