4th Annual Consumer Research Symposium
Each fall the FDIC’s Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection holds a Consumer Research Symposium at its facilities in Arlington, Virginia. In previous years the symposium has been attended by a diverse audience from academia, government agencies, nonprofit agencies, and industry.
The goal of the symposium is to facilitate discussion of recent research on consumers’ capabilities, knowledge, preferences, and experiences in the market for financial products and services, as well as the effects of public policy interventions and new regulations on consumers, households, communities, and financial institutions.
Please contact ConResearchSymp@FDIC.gov to be added to our mailing list.
Save the date! The 5th Annual Consumer Research Symposium is scheduled for October 15th - October 16th, 2015.
Please check back as this website will be updated with additional information about the 2015 conference, including paper submission deadlines and registration details. Alternatively, please submit your contact information to ConResearchSymp@fdic.gov to be notified via email as additional information is released.
