How tolerant or otherwise are irish adults in regard to financial risks? Evidence from a largescale survey

Short answer :they are tolerant, but it depends on a number of demographic and other factors. In particular, gender, age and the level of education matter. We also find little evidence of urban/rural divides in risk tolerance. This is to our knowledge the first benchmark survey of risk tolerance to be published for irish adults, 650 of whom are surveyed here.

A paper on this is forthcoming in Financial Services Review, while here is a video discussing it and the paper itself can be found on SSRN
