Vantage partners with UNESCO New Delhi toward financial inclusion in India

Rick Steves

In the coming years, Vantage aims to leverage its financial and technological expertise to provide support for UNESCO’s education initiatives in India, by increasing the accessibility of teaching and bringing the benefits of education to those who need it most.

Vantage has partnered with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation) as a part of its social commitment to strengthen education opportunities to emerging markets like India.

The international multi-asset trading platform has been highly focused on a new ESG approach, from the day-to-day activities at the office to disaster relief initiatives across the globe.

Within this partnership, Vantage is supporting the “State of the Education Report for India, 2022 – Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education”, covering a number of pertinent issues at the intersection of AI and education, including the potential of artificial intelligence to empower teachers and enhance our understanding of the learning process and toward financial inclusion.

“AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India”

Eric Falt, Director and UNESCO Representative to Bhutan, India, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka, said, ” While the world may be on the fence about AI, this much is certain that AI is here to stay. With the rise of ICTs and digital banking platforms, AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India. Financial education and skilling are key to improving the economic and social well-being of people, especially women. In light of the same, we are very happy to partner with Vantage who share our commitments.”

Marc Despallieres, Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, said, “Our global footprint and presence in emerging markets has provided us with a unique perspective into the issues faced by our communities. We aim to foster a long-term, strategic partnership with UNESCO that rests on the foundations of our shared values – inclusion and equity. As a financial services provider, lending our support towards emerging technological developments in education, such as on AI in education and on digital literacy initiatives to students and learners in India, was a natural first step to take on this education journey.”

In the coming years, Vantage aims to leverage its financial and technological expertise to provide support for UNESCO’s education initiatives in India, by increasing the accessibility of teaching and bringing the benefits of education to those who need it most.

Vantage’s ESG journey includes UNHCR fundraising, blood donation, climate change, women’s empowerment

The strategic partnership with UNESCO marks another milestone in the corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) journey of Vantage.

Formally launched a in July 2022, Vantage’s several other ESG activities this year include a dollar-for-dollar matching fundraising exercise in partnership with the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and a global blood donation drive across their offices.

Vantage has also partnered with popular digital media producer Supercar Blondie to raise awareness on climate change and women’s empowerment during the week of the Extreme E race in Sardinia, Italy.
