J1b CANCELLED Equity Allocation Decisions During the Great Recession

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

In our analysis, we seek to evaluate what determines the asset allocation decisions of individual investors during a market recession. Using panel data available in the 2007 and 2009 waves of the Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF) we look specifically at the influence of stated risk preferences and changes in risk preferences during the market downturn on the equity allocation decisions of investors during the great recession. We seek to understand how well risk tolerance questionnaires translate into risk in the portfolio over time, particularly during economic downturns.
