First Tennessee Bank has established a partnership with the nonprofit Operation Hope to offer free financial literacy workshops and counseling sessions in several branches.
The program has already begun in two branches in Nashville. Operation Hope's workshops seek to educate consumers on topics ranging from consumer rights to family budgeting and debt-reduction strategies.
The bank and its parent company, the $25.4 billion-asset First Horizon National in Memphis, have worked with Operation Hope before and envisions expanding the partnership. "We're committed to building this effort across Tennessee," First Horizon Chief Executive Bryan Jordan says.
