MIFE Inaugural Conference und Early Career Workshop 2021

Financial literacy has become a key competence. Individuals face large challenges when it comes to making financial decisions. Long-term trends like demographic change and digitalisation have far-reaching implications for old-age provision, savings behaviour, interest rates, and financing conditions. Unforeseen events as the current COVID-19 pandemic add further pressure. How do individuals deal with these challenges? What do they know about finances and how does this influence their savings and consumption decisions? How can financial education support the development of financial competence? These and related questions are complex and multifaceted. They thus need to be addressed from various perspectives.
