The Think Forward Initiative (TFI) has set up a Research Challenge aimed at providing a way for researchers to show how existing research can be used to identify or address problems consumers face in managing their personal finances.

The Think Forward Initiative (TFI) is a joint project between ING, Dell EMC, Deloitte, Dimension Data and the Household Financial Network of the CEPR. It is a multi-year movement bringing together experts representing governments, academics, consumers, and the financial and technology sectors
