The LawLab at the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE with the kind support by the German Research Foundation (DFG), project number 310 104 000 7, organizes and cordially invites you to attend the
Young Scholar’s Workshop on Algorithmic Price Discrimination in Financial Services
to be held on 17 May 2023, House of Finance, Campus Westend, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main
Algorithm- and big-data-based scoring and credit underwriting has for some years been the topic of a lively international debate, featuring empirical work as well as normative work. The latter has so far focused mainly on data privacy and anti-discrimination law. More recently, we see interest in understanding legal implications of personalised pricing using these techniques. A paradigm example is targeting vulnerable consumers (often financially illiterate, pressed for time and in urgent need of credit) with above-market credit offers. The workshop will bring together young scholars working in the area to discuss their thoughts on the topic.
