Household Finance expert Laurent Calvet Speaker and CEPR Programme Committee Member
Written on 20 September 2019.
Household Finance expert Professor Laurent Calvet (EDHEC Business School & CEPR), will present a paper entitled "Can Security Design Solve Household Reluctance to Take Risk?" at the upcoming European Workshop on Household Finance (Rhodes, September 20 & 21, 2019).
In this paper, Laurent Calvet and co-authors Claire Celerier, Paolo Sodini and Boris Vallee, show how the introduction of capital protected investments and their broad adoption lead to a signiﬁcant increase in exposure to stock markets for a large share of the population. This eﬀect is signiﬁcantly more pronounced for households exhibiting a high reluctance to take ﬁnancial risk before the introduction.
