On February 9, Franklin Templeton partnered with Junior Achievement of Northern California to host Aragon High School students interested in learning about how FinTech is fostered and utilized at Franklin Templeton to enhance how the investment management company serves its clients.
Junior Achievement is a key global charity partner of Franklin Templeton. Employee volunteers across the US help deliver JA curriculum to provide innovative, hands-on work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy education to students.
The FinTech event, held at the firm’s San Mateo, CA campus, engaged youth on the technology and innovation that is emerging to compete with traditional financial methods and service delivery and offered insight into current financial trends and the moves and ideas of global leaders in the field.
This professional workplace visit helped students learn about career options in financial services and FinTech. Students were introduced to Franklin Templeton via presentations from company experts and a campus tour, including firm’s FinTech Incubator.
