  • Abstract


    This research analyzes the evolution of financial literacy literature. Specifically, the study performs bibliometric analysis to examine the descriptive, intellectual, and conceptual structure of financial literacy research. This bibliometric analysis covers the period between 1963 and 2021, and is based on 4 489 articles retrieved from two databases: Web of Science and Scopus. The findings illustrate certain keywords that emerged between the two periods, and reveal that financial literacy research has not yet reached maturity.
