2016 CFPB Research Conference

On Dec. 15–16, 2016, we hosted our second research conference at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C.

The goal of the conference was to highlight research on the topic of consumer finance that can inform researchers and policymakers. The conference was focused on high-quality consumer finance research, with academic and government researchers presenting their research papers.



The two-day conference consisted of six panels of researchers presenting their work in various areas of consumer finance with members of the CFPB’s Office of Research serving as discussants.



Speakers consisted of local, national and international researchers from academia, government and non-profit agencies who presented their research in various areas of consumer finance.
