Lion or sheep: who are you? A study of risk tolerance and risk capacity among American and Italian subjects

One of the characteristics that differentiate investors is their willingness to accept financial risk. According to previous research efforts, the willingness to bear risks is valuated through the assessment of two dimensions, risk tolerance (intended as attitude toward risk), and risk capacity. The purpose of this paper is to analyze and delve into the study of financial risk tolerance and its relationship with risk capacity. A questionnaire made available by Finametrica, a leading company in the research about financial risk tolerance, has been proposed to American and Italian subjects. A software program produced by Finametrica calculated the score of financial risk tolerance and this was elaborated with the answers about risk capacity. Then the risk tolerance score was analyzed looking to the demographics and socioeconomic factors.
