About the Journal

The International Review of Financial Consumers (IRFC) is the first journal to publish studies solely related to financial consumers. Its theoretical and empirical research covers financial products and services, regulations and supervision, institutions, and financial culture while maintaining an emphasis on the consumer perspective.

As the contribution of financial consumption becomes increasingly important to the national economy, keeping focus on the equity of the market for consumers grows more and more necessary. Recent trends in globalization and liberalization policies have reinforced challenges in today’s financial markets, as evidenced by the many consumption disputes drawing attention from the media in recent years. Not only have financial instruments become more complicated and hard to understand for the public, but also frequent changes in regulations and business practices have led to confusion for financial consumers. Our journal seeks to promote research that addresses this confusion and leads to a more efficient and equitable financial market

The IRFC is issued by International Academy of Financial Consumers (IAFICO).


IRFC publishes rigorous and original research related to the protection of financial consumers.
