In collaboration with Tg Poste The financial education conference of Poste Italiane was held in the splendid setting of the Post Office in Piazza San Silvestro in Rome on the theme “The identification of risks that are run in the course of life and insurance” , organized on the occasion of the Insurance Education Day within the fifth edition of the Financial Education Month. During the day we discussed the protection solutions that can protect us from great risks and prevent significant economic consequences in life. The starting point is that Italians are huge savers, in fact the stock of savings held by Italians in liquidity or deposits is approximately 1,860 billion euros. But, as evidenced by the ISTAT “Survey on Savings and Financial Choices of Italians in 2021”, among the motivations of Italians to save, about 60% is linked to uncertainty, possible unforeseen events. The conference, therefore, illustrated how saving to protect ourselves from the unexpected may not be the best way to insure and that perhaps we could dedicate a larger share of our savings to our future projects and to our loved ones; in fact, with very small amounts it is possible to insure and protect oneself with even very high coverage. In summary, we talked about the world of protection, insurance coverage and the importance of the role of the Consultant in choosing the most suitable solutions to protect one’s person and loved ones.
