New digital series educates young audience on financial planning Mumbai, June 27h 2015- Bankbazaar.com, a leading financial marketplace, today launched the second season of the digital series ‘Let’s Talk About Money’. Through this unique knowledge-driven module, BankBazaar.com aims to educate and empower young audience about various aspects of financial planning and take charge of their finances. The second instalment of the ‘Let’s Talk about Money’ series is now live on Bank Bazaar.com’s YouTube Channel.

Today the digital platform has emerged as a powerful medium to engage and connect with the youth.

Commenting on the launch of the new series, Mr. Adhil Shetty, CEO said, “We want the young, internet-savvy consumer to start engaging with the financial services category, hence this initiative aims to simplify things for them....
