The CEPR Network on Household Finance and the Queen Mary University of London are organising the Ninth European Workshop on Household Finance on 18-20 April 2024 with the support of Queen Mary University of London.

The objective of this workshop is to host presentations and foster interaction between senior and junior researchers working in the area of household finance. The research workshop will include an evening event organised by John  Campbell and Tarun Ramadorai on "Our unequal personal finance system and what we should do about it".
The workshop will include state-of-the-art research on household financial behaviour and on how this is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment.

We solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:
  • Patterns of asset allocation and debt behaviour over the life cycle
  • Financing retirement and the demographic transition
  • Consumer indebtedness, financial distress and default decisions
  • Behavioural approaches to household finances
  • Financial literacy and financial education programmes
  • Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
  • International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
  • Cognitive and genetic studies on individual financial performance
  • Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
  • The impact of technology on household financial behaviour
The organisers encourage submissions from PhD students in household finance. Students must apply online stating that all co-authors in the paper are PhD students and supply their CV. Students should note that, from 2020 on, the best student paper prize will only be awarded once a year at the Household Finance Conference which takes place every Autumn. So, students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should submit it to the Autumn conference, but they are welcome to submit another paper to the Spring workshop.
