Abstract: Most of the traditional economic theories used to explain investor behaviour assume full investor rationality but, experience proves otherwise : The aim of the study is to find out whether in Turkey investment decisions vary according to differences in gender. Method: The survey is administered among a random sample of 1,648 respondents from Turkey. It is found that on average men exhibit a higher level of risk appetite and tolerance than women, thus suggesting a clear gender divide in terms of investment behaviour.
