Hub 22 aims at carrying out an empirical and multidisciplinary research on the experience of investors and consumers of financial products, their perceptions, their expectations, their experience, their actual (or presumed) knowledge of the mechanisms that govern the financial market (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurance companies), their knowledge (and their lack of knowledge) of investor protection mechanisms, the observed trends in excessive risk-taking, etc. These questions must be studied in the context of intermediation relations where these dimensions are both questioned and put into play.
This research project was set up in 2018 by Maya Cachecho, Ph.D. (researcher at the CRDP), who has headed it since. Research is conducted in partnership with financial market actors and operators (regulators, consumer associations and financial institutions).
This project is linked to the three axes of the ADAJ research project, but is located more specifically at the interface of Axes 1 (knowledge and skills of citizens) and 2 (professional practices and accessibility).
