Household Finance

The department Household Finance conducts research on the financial decisions of private households and the interplay between the supply of and the demand for financial services. The research projects in this area are united by the overarching goal of developing solutions that lead to better financial decisions by households. In addition to the microeconomic perspective, the department also follows a macroeconomic perspective, for example concerning the design of pension systems as a determinant of both the depth and width of capital markets and long-term wealth formation in the household sector of an economy.

The research project "The impact of unintended discrimination in financial advice on wealth accumulation," led by Christine Laudenbach, Markus Eyting, and Florian Hett has been recently selected for an 18-month research grant as part of HEC Montréal’s call for projects on Pensions, Household Finance Wellness, and Retirement Research.

This year’s Household Finance Workshop is scheduled for 11 and 12 July and aims to serve as a platform for discussing ongoing research in household finance and to strengthen this community with a special focus on junior, untenured researchers. The keynote speech will be delivered by Marina Niessner from Indiana University.
