Alex Horowitz guides research for Pew’s consumer finance project, which focuses on how small-dollar loans and consumer banking can be made safer and more transparent. He manages a series of surveys, experiments, and analyses designed to identify which features of payday, auto title, and other small-credit products work well and which work poorly, and to examine the impacts of market practices and potential regulations.
Before joining Pew, Horowitz worked at polling firm Hart Research conducting strategic opinion research for clients in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. His previous work was in media relations, baseball information, and communications for the Florida Marlins and Cincinnati Reds.
Horowitz holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Harvard University.
