Guiding Financial Decision-Making for Retirement: a Multi-Disciplinary Approach

Back to search results

This project will improve understanding of how individuals make choices about insurance against retirement, health and aged care risks and how they can be supported to make better choices. The communication of risk is inherently difficult. Using experimental methods, the project will seek to identify formats for risk presentation which are transferable across contexts, specifically investment, longevity and health care risk, which are all key to retirement decisions. It will then design and implement experimental surveys to identify interventions to assist people with retirement finance decisions, and test these in the field. Outcomes will guide member interaction and communication by the financial services industry, and the development of associated policy and regulation.
