You are invited to submit papers to be presented at the Asia Pacific Financial Education Institute, held virtually from 15-17 November 2021.
The Institute is a forum for presentation and discussion of financial education research. Its purpose is to promote excellent work in this field, foster research that can inform policy, and identify effective financial education programs.
The Institute seeks papers assessing the effectiveness of financial education and its effects on financial behaviour and other outcomes. Research on financial education in all venues are welcome - primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, workplaces, and other locations. Academic faculty, researchers and advanced PhD students in economics, finance, and related fields studying financial education are encouraged to submit papers.
