Women - get to the shares!

A study by DekaBank revealed that women invest differently from men, play it safe and forego returns.

A survey of 10,000 people clearly showed that men tend to invest in stocks, while women still rely on the savings book, even if it does not yield interest. Women still earn less, often work part-time and have lower pension rights. But they would be more dependent on returns, especially since statistically they live longer.

When asked how to invest 100 euros a month for 18 years, only 13.1 percent of women answered that they invested their money in shares and equity funds. On the other hand, 32.1 percent of men were in favour. A study by the University of Chicago sees the reason for this in the male hormone testosterone. This makes them more willing to take risks and generates more interest in competition.

Another study compared women living alone and men living alone in terms of their investment preferences. The fact that men living alone are increasingly investing in shares is explained by the desire of men to achieve a higher status on the marriage market. That's why they took more risks.

In any case, the return on equities does not look bad if you look at the last 20 years. According to the MSCI World Index (including net returns, total return), an average return of around 10 per cent could be achieved with an equity investment. Interest rate hikes from the FED are probably not to be expected in the current year, so one should free oneself from too much anxiety and perhaps let some of the assets flow into equities. One might think of Auryn Resources or White Gold.

Auryn Resources - - has an impressive portfolio of projects. The gold and gold copper projects are located in British Columbia, Nunavut and Peru. Through acquisitions and project development, Auryn Resources aims to create value for shareholders.

White Gold - - owns an immensely large land package in the White Gold District in the Yukon. White Gold has just acquired an adjacent gold project, adding an additional 16,000 hectares to its property (now 439,000 hectares).
