Moneylife Foundation


As part of its strong investor- and customer-orientation, in February 2010, Moneylife set up a non-profit organization, Moneylife Foundation (MLF) which is the Voice of Savers. The Foundation works towards safe and fair market practices through workshops, round table meetings, white papers, research, awareness campaigns, grievance redressal, counseling, etc. 
The Foundation has set up Moneylife Knowledge Centre, a lecture hall-cum-reading room with access to hundreds of books and magazines on business, economics and finance. The Foundation works at enhancing financial literacy at the grassroots level through a combination of focused workshops on issues based on real-life situations and experiences (how to be smart with your money, importance of credit histories, will and nominations, senior-citizen issues, etc), lectures by experts, panel discussions and focused group meetings to debate specific issues or regulatory changes.
In this short period, the Foundation has conducted over 215 seminars and conferences. This record is unmatched by any other NGO. The activities of MLF are now larger than that of all recognized investor organizations put together. Although Moneylife is among the smallest, it is the only media company to have taken this initiative. Please look up
All these initiatives make Moneylife a unique, one-of-its-kind media organization.
