We know that liquid assets provide a safety net for short-term financial well-being, but how can we transition from short-term financial stability to longer-term financial health?
On August 5, 2021, AARP and the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis held a conversation about evidence-based factors that contribute to improving long-term financial well-being.
Researchers Jeremy Burke, Stephen Roll and Emily Gallagher shared their findings on the mitigation effect of liquid assets during a financial shock, the leading factors that contribute to long-term financial stability, and programs, policies, and behaviors that could support long-term financial wellness. Hector Ortiz, senior policy analyst with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, moderated a conversation with the researchers following their presentations, including an opportunity for question and answer with the attendees.
Watch the recording of this important conversation about current research identifying much-needed opportunities for future exploration about how to build longer-term financial health.
