  1. Reality or Perception? Financial Literacy Survey and Behavioral Insights By Alessia Sconti

  1. By: Alessia Sconti (Department of Economics (University of Verona))
    Abstract: The research goal is to support the relationship between financial literacy and sound wealth management, including behavioral insights. The attempt is to take into account every aspect of the financial management and decision-making process. Although financial literacy is a relatively new theme, an increasing interest is showed on the topic. The paper aims to provide an overview of the actual stage of literature about real and perceived financial literacy. The contribution is to create a bridge between the financial literacy literature survey as much complete as possible and behavioral biases related to money management to give a framework for future research.
