Financial Innovation and Household Finance

Written on 03 November 2017.

On November 3, at the NBER Behavioral Finance Meeting in Cambridge (MA), EDHEC PhD in Finance core faculty member Professor Laurent Calvet will present with his co-authors Claire Celerier, Paolo Sodini, and Boris Vallee, a recent paper entitled “Can Financial Innovation Solve Household Reluctance to Take Risk?”

In this paper, the authors observe that, a simple portfolio choice model shows that household loss aversion best explains the demand for structured products and the empirical facts. Their results illustrate how financial innovation can mitigate investor behavioral biases.
