GIS Theme 3 – The rise of the risk investor

Share

In March 2021, Schroders commissioned an independent online survey of over 23,000 people who invest from 32 locations around the globe. This spanned countries across Europe, Asia, the Americas and more.

Their research defines ‘people’ as those who will be investing at least €10,000 (or the equivalent) in the next 12 months and who have made changes to their investments within the last 10 years. Due to this threshold, Schroders acknowledges that this group and therefore the research findings are not representative of everyone’s experience of the pandemic. The results were published in their Global Investor Study Report 2021.

Theme 3 of the report looks at the rise of the risk investor. Any investment puts capital at risk to a certain extent, and that’s certainly true in times of economic uncertainty. But despite this, the Global Investor Study 2021 shows how people are exhibiting riskier investment behaviour. What’s driving these decisions?

Below is a quick snapshot of some of the findings but, for further details, please visit the Schroders’ Risk hub.
