Opportunities in the New Paradigm: Expanding the Financial Assets and Real Estate Access

Event Overview

Research shows that households with access to financial information and investment opportunities have greater economic stability. Yet access isn’t equal: White families are more likely to have advantages when buying a first home, often inheriting money from extended family to get started. Once they own a home, these families see improved credit scores and even greater access to credit. Black and Latino families, however, are less likely to have the savings or assets to provide this kind of support, severely limiting their ability to build similar financial foundations.

In this webinar, our panel of experts in behavioral economics, finance, and affordable housing will explore highlights from the Cornell Institute for Household and Behavioral Finance’s (IBHF) 4th Biennial Household and Finance Symposium and what those findings mean for policy change. They’ll discuss how research and practice can promote more inclusive access to credit, wealth, and financial security for all households.
