My name is Roger, I am 26 and live in Zurich. I work part-time at a bank and study business administration at the ZHAW in Winterthur.
Professionally I have been dealing with finances for quite some time. In my private life I have been dealing with the topic of wealth accumulation for 5 years.
I am currently writing my bachelor’s thesis on “Financial independence - an empirical study on its distribution in Switzerland”.
In my work I will conduct interviews or a survey to investigate the situation in Switzerland. Specifically, I imagine that questions will be asked on the following topics:
Motivation for achieving financial independence
Financial knowledge (How was it acquired?)
Asset accumulation (savings rate, investments, behavior in financial crises)
Withdrawal of assets (4% rule, etc.
It still depends on my advisor whether I should work with interviews or a survey. In any case, I have to answer the questions with people who are interested in financial independence. I think this forum is the right place for that .
Is there any of you interested in participating in an interview or a survey?
The whole thing will take place in April. If I can work with interviews, they can be done in person, via Skype or by phone and they will of course be anonymized in my thesis.
I would be very happy about a positive feedback.
