Chair of Household Finance

About us

The Chair of Household Finance provides teaching and research in the field of Household Finance. Household finance is about the financial decision-making of households and their individuals. During their lifetime, individuals have to make numerous financial decisions (e.g., financing the studies, saving for retirement, investing in the stock market). However, these decisions are not always optimal. Potential ways to improve financial decision-making are financial education and financial advice. New regulations and new technology (FinTech) can also result in better decisions. Thereby, household finance is equally relevant for researchers, policymakers, financial institutions, and the broader public.
