Darman Room, T-135, Center for Public Leadership

Join us for a Behavioral Insights Student Group lunch with Paul Adams (UK Financial Conduct Authority).

Paul is the Head of Behavioural Economics at the Financial Conduct Authority. He has been an at the FCA for six years and ran the FCAs first ever large scale RCT published in 2013. He co-founded the organisation’s Behavioural Economics and Data Science Unit in 2015 and has since helped the FCA run large scale RCTs to inform policy in areas such as compensation, retirement, insurance, savings, credit cards and current accounts. Paul and the team also use causal econometrics and online experiments to evaluate policy, as well as applying behavioural science to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the FCA.

Paul will talk about how policy makers can use behavioural economics to help diagnose problems and evaluate policy in retail financial markets. He will illustrate this with recent case studies covering checking accounts, credit cards and investments.

Lunch will be served. RSVP here.
