SAFE Researchers Receive TFI Research Grant

Tobin Hanspal, Claes Bäckman, Nathanael Vellekoop and Olga Goldfayn have been awarded funding by the Think Forward Initiative

Three SAFE junior researchers have been awarded two out of eight research grants by the Think Forward Initiative (TFI) research challenge. Tobin Hanspal (SAFE) and Claes Bäckman (Lund University) will examine social links developed in multi-level marketing schemes and possible effects on the finances of individuals. In the second project Nathanael Vellekoop (SAFE) and Olga Goldfayn (SAFE) will examine how much variance personality traits explain access to and use of credit.

The Think Forward Initiative brings together a range of experts to find out how and why we make financial choices.
