Understanding Household Financial Behaviour Across Borders

Programme Overview

Household portfolios once consisted of a checking account and possibly a house. Now, the demographic transition and extensive financial innovation are forcing households to save for retirement and to take on many risks that are not always obvious. Households typically do not participate in private pension plans, do not hold stocks or ETF’s, are undiversified, uninformed about financial instruments, unaware of basic financial facts, unwilling to take or follow financial advice, culturally biased, and largely unprotected by financial regulation. With the plans for a Capital Markets Union, the range of opportunities increases, but so does the potential for mistakes.

The course will provide participants with the ability to interpret the results of cutting-edge research in household financial behavior internationally, the role of institutions, policies and culture, the scope for financial education, the role of financial advisors, the importance of financial innovation.

Furthermore, participants will be introduced to the main challenges to financial regulation and investor protection and the prospects and challenges to households that arise from the coming Capital Markets Union.

Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) carefully before registering to our programmes (“programmes”) and accessing our online application form (the “Service”), both operated by the Cyprus International Institute of Management (“CIIM”, “Executive Education”, “us”, “we”, or “our”). Your access to the Service is conditioned on your very acceptance of and compliance with these particular Terms. Effectively, these terms apply to all visitors, users and others constituents (“you”, “your”, "persons", “customer”, “participant”, or “company”) who may demonstrate interest in our Service. By accessing this Service, you actually agree to be legally bounded by these Terms. In contrast, if you are in disagreement with these Terms and Conditions, we kindly advise you to exit this Service immediately.

1. Personal Information

In particular, for the purpose of promoting CIIM's programmes and activities, you are kindly informed that your personal information including current and former participation to programmes, testimonials, full name, position, company and company logo may be used without your prior concent or consultation with you. If you do not wish CIIM to have your details included in our promotional activities, please notify us of your objections by writing to execedu@ciim.ac.cy or to Cyprus International Institute of Management, 21 Akademias Avenue, Aglandjia, P.O. Box 20378, 2151 Nicosia, Cyprus.

We wish to assure all persons interested in our Service that we will not sell, distribute or lease any of your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or we are required by law. At the same time, we wish everybody know that we are committed to ensuring that access to personal information in our records is completely secured. Therefore, for the purpose of preventing unauthorised access or disclosure of classified information, we have put in place adequately safe physical, electronic and managerial procedures to control all access to our information databases.

2. Registrations

This Service is intended to collect information for your participation in our programmes. However, we cannot guarantee your automatic participation or seat reservation to our programmes, considering that practical limitations may arise. CIIM reserves the right to change or cancel the dates of the programme, without your consent. In the event of cancellation or modification of the time schedule of the programme, it will be our duty to give you adequate notification for the any schedule changes.

3. Tuition and Programme Fees

Tuition is due upon your acceptance by the CIIM into the programme you have applied for. However, prices are subject to change without notice. Furthermore, if you fail to settle your invoice prior the commencement of the programme, CIIM reserves the right to cancel/withdraw your application and refuse your participation. Additionally, if you fail to settle your invoice,  even after the commencement of the programme, CIIM reserves the right to proceed with legal actions for damages.

4. Cancellation of Registration

Cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations received more than seven (7) days prior to a program’s start date will not incur penalties. On the other hand, for cancellations received less than seven (7) days prior to a program’s start date, you will incur a charge of 100 percent of the full tuition. In this case though, substitutions may be welcomed considering the service capabilities of CIIM. If a participant or a participating company fails to attend the programme they have applied for without any prior notification, even if a withdrawal occurs on or after a program start date, full tuition may be forfeited.

5. Refunds and Transfers of Registrations

Participants who would like to request a full refund for their participation, or need to transfer their participation to another CIIM programme, may be eligible to do so considering that the start date of the original programme is no less than seven (7) days. Requests to refunds received less than seven (7) days prior to the start date of the programme, will be forfeited. However, in this case though, transfers of registrations may be welcomed considering the service capabilities of CIIM. If a participant or a participating company fails to attend the programme they have applied for without any prior notification, even if a withdrawal occurs on or after a program start date, full tuition may be forfeited.

6. HRDA Subsidy

The Human Resource Development Authority (HRDA) provides a subsidy i.e. partial or full tuition coverage, to organisations participating with their employees in the Authority's programmes, only if they can meet the Authority's criteria. In order to confirm your eligibility to participate in the Authority's programmes, we provide you with the Authority's programme form for which you need to return to CIIM fully completed. If for whatever reason, the HRDA refuses to provide a subsidy for your attendance to our programmes, you and your company will be liable to immediately reimburse CIIM with the gross fees, which were supposed to be covered by the HRDA subsidy. If you fail to meet your legal costs to CIIM, we reserve the right to proceed with legal actions for damages.

We may terminate or suspend access to our Service immediately, without our prior notice or any liability on our part, for any reason whatsoever, if you breach the Terms included in this agreement. All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

2. Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Cyprus, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between CIIM and you regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between CIIM and you regarding the Service.

3. Changes

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
