It's Your Financial Future Own It

When it comes to money, most of us agree that it’s a good idea to save more and control spending. But in order to fully own your financial future, you need to know more than the fundamentals: You need to truly master financial literacy. And that might take more than you’d expect.

According to a recent Global Financial Literacy Survey by S&P, just 57% of Americans are considered financially literate and have a firm grasp on concepts like interest and inflation. And the United States ranks as only the 14th most financially literate country in the world. (Norway, Denmark and Sweden are tied for first.)

GM Financial believes in driving financial literacy for consumers in every stage of life. That’s why we’re committed to providing the insight and tools you need to make smarter financial decisions. It’s also why we launched KEYSSM by GM Financial. Part of a bigger Mobility Initiative, this program can help you unlock a smarter financial future by bridging the financial literacy gap and empowering mobility.

Ready to own your future and get on the road to true financial literacy? You can start by learning to Talk the Talk. Check out our glossary of terms and phrases common to the world of money management, auto financing and vehicle ownership. We’re excited to bring you the remarkable experience you expect, no matter where your journey takes you.
