Intergenerational Transfers, Wealth and Gender in Britain
We investigate the impact of intergenerational wealth transfers on wealth levels and inequality, exploiting rich cross-country household survey data and focusing on Britain. Making use of the cross-sectional and longitudinal components of the Wealth and Assets Survey, we analyse patterns of intergenerational transfer receipt by gender. We assess the extent to which differences in the scale and nature of these receipts contribute to the gender wealth gap overall and across different wealth components.
