Creation of a Financial Education Lab

The school announces the creation of a Financial Education Lab, thanks to a $1 million donation from Desjardins Group. The Lab, which joins the ecosystem of HEC Montreal’s Retirement and Savings Institute (RSI), is directed by Philippe d’Astous, Associate Professor in the Department of Finance. At the same time, he is appointed to the Desjardins Professorship in Personal Finance, which aims to retain and attract talent in the area of personal finance to HEC Montréal.

On November 11 and 12, join us at the Saint-Sulpice Hôtel for the 3rd edition of our international academic workshop on household finance. See the program and register by following this link.
