Abstract

This paper attempts to describe the process of acumulation and desacumulation of financial holdings across the life-cycle. The paper is divided in two parts, in the first, we survey the theoretical literature on the long run motivations behind the demand for financial assets by household units. In the second part, we evaluate the empirical relevance of these motivations using a series of Brazilian household surveys. In particular, we use a qualitative survey implemented by the Associação Brasileira de Crédito e Poupança (ABECIP).
