This week I came across a study (done in 2009) by Vanguard, that I found quite interesting. It focuses on how investors perceive stock market risk to change over time. For example:
- 26% of respondents believe that stocks will always outperform bonds over a period of 20 years or more.
- Investors with a 4-year college degree or more were significantly more confident in stocks’ likelihood of outperforming bonds than were investors with less education.
- Male investors are far more confident than female investors about the likelihood of stocks outperforming bonds.
I’m not sure what to do with such information. But it’s interesting nonetheless.
