dc.description.abstractMy thesis examines the saliency and power that the personal attributes an individual is born with (nature variables) and life experiences (nurture variables) have on an individual's risk taking in trading. My research is motivated by studies in the psychology, economics and finance literature that posit these variables have an impact on an individual’s risk taking, albeit not specifically related to trading. My results show that both nature and nurture variables are significant predictors of risk taking in trading and imply it is possible to profile an individual’s risk taking propensity in trading by capturing these factors.en
