Mission

The primary aim of the IBHF is to become a leading center in the areas of household and behavioral finance and a key player in the consumer finance policy debates. IBHF affiliates strive to study investment decision making behavior with the goal of shedding light on how to better model observed financial behavior and to inform consumer finance related policies and regulation.

The IBHF cooperates with its network of academics, finance industry professionals, government agencies, and other financial research centers to faciliate the development of research and information. The IBHF works to achieve its mission by focusing on six major program areas: bi-annual household and behavioral finance symposium, visiting fellows program, post-doctoral research associates program, research scholars program, financial education and outreach, and a white paper series.
