Household Finance

Project lead

Michael Haliassos

Director of CEPR RPN on Household Finance Centre for Economic Policy Research; Professor and Chair for Macroeconomics and Finance Goethe University Frankfurt

Household Finance was initially established as a CEPR Network in 2015 and expanded into an RPN in 2022. Its purpose is to promote, conduct, shape, and disseminate research in this dynamic field that was initiated about 25 years ago and now attracts the interest of researchers of all ages, genders, and backgrounds, whether in academia, central banks, regulatory agencies, fiscal authorities or in the private sector. This field, in which Europe-based researchers have been active since its beginnings in the late 1980s, has benefitted from the increasing complexity of household portfolios, partly because of the demographic transition and financial innovation, as well as from the development of pioneering data sets and the development of computational and experimental methods.
