E1a Do Investors' Subjective Risk Perceptions Influence Their Portfolio Choice? A Household Bargaining Perspective [CFP Asset Allocation]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using the 2012 wave of the Health and Retirement Study, this paper finds that individual investors view the stock market to be much riskier than it actually is according to objective measures. This paper also finds that the subjective risk perception of the household member with more bargaining power has a significant negative effect on the allocation of the household portfolio to risky assets and that the subjective risk perception of the household member with less bargaining power has no significant effect on the allocation of household portfolio to risky assets, controlling for demographic and other factors.
