Risk Profiling at financial institutions

Project

Project

Research by AUAS students has indicated that individual consumers are often quite proactive seeking out information before they purchase a high risk financial investment product. They seem to mainly use the internet as their source of information and to a lesser extent an investment counsellor.

In 2013 the professorship Corporate Governance & Leadership prepared and carried out research by students of the minor Stock Investment to research the differences and similarities to the questionnaires that lead to a product’s risk profile. The research has led to a publication in ESB (Economisch Statistische Berichten) and will be expanded on in the coming years.
