A report, Opportunities to Improve the Financial Capability and Financial Wellbeing of Postsecondary Students, has been prepared by the Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC) and describes the state of financial education among postsecondary students. The report describes current efforts to enhance financial education in a number of institutions with regards to student understanding of financial aid and financial education topics at two critical junctures:
 Choosing Where to Go and How to Finance Postsecondary Education; and
 Making Sound Financial Decisions When Enrolled and Beyond.

Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services is designed for community-based organizations interested in integrating financial capability services into existing programs (e.g. housing, job training, or Head Start). The interactive tools in the guide walk organizations step-by-step through the process of developing an integration plan, beginning with developing a deeper understanding of clients’ financial circumstances and which financial capability services can help them improve their situations. The guide also includes tools to help organizations determine how best to provide financial capability services—whether through referrals, partnerships, or in-house. The final step in the process is the creation of a logic model that serves as a comprehensive roadmap for implementing the integration plan. Building Financial Capability is a practical resource for organizations providing financial capability services for the first time as well as those that want to improve or expand existing efforts.

PISA 2012 is the first large-scale international study to assess the financial literacy, learned in and outside of school, of 15-year-olds nearing the end of compulsory education. It assesses the extent to which students in 18 participating countries and economies have the knowledge and skills that are essential to make financial decisions and plans for their future. The assessment highlights the importance of financial literacy, defines financial education and financial literacy, and discusses how the assessment was organized. It also offers an overview of the limited and uneven provision of financial education in schools in participating countries and economies, and describes the steps taken in some countries to improve financial literacy among students.

Economic studies on households’ financial asset ownership and allocation have discussed the relationship between asset holdings and socioeconomic variables. The current research on asset ownership has been conducted with data from the country of China utilizing a random sample of 2080 Chinese households collected in 2009. Greater asset levels increased holding of mutual funds, stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, gold, life insurance, housing savings, and pensions. Greater levels of debt decreased holdings of gold, certificates of deposit, and cash. Age was negatively related to the holding of cash, and positively correlated with holdings of certificates of deposit, mutual funds, bonds, gold, housing savings, pensions, and other assets; with the effect falling for those over the age of 60. Self employed were less likely to own stocks, bonds, housing savings, and pensions; when compared to salary earners. Those not working were less likely to own life insurance, housing savings, and pensions; the latter two being contingent upon employment. Educational level was positively related to the ownership of mutual funds, government bonds, life insurance, housing savings, and pensions, indicating the presence of human capital to reinforce diversification, as well as understanding risk management. In sum, the results fit most models of asset ownership with income, education, employment status, and financial goals having relatively robust results. The continued introduction of financial markets and financial planning to the Chinese population, as markets mature, future analyses are expected to be asymptotic to those found in mature financial markets.
