Our Mission

Our research aims to build an understanding of the benefits and risks as technologies change consumer financial markets. How are people, markets, and financial institutions leveraging new technologies to deal with the classic challenges of consumer financial services? And how do these challenges affect the allocation of risks across the economy and the regulatory landscape?

Our current areas of focus include Financial Decision Making, FinTech, Cryptocurrency, Savings and Lending Markets, and Retirement. Our Sloan Finance faculty researchers, in collaboration with an interdisciplinary set of researchers across Sloan and MIT, are working with extensive new data sets and new models to analyze household financial decisions and their implications for the economy and financial markets.
