Why Women Make Better Investors than Men

Written by Mika Hamilton

Being involved with a company that trains people how to actively trade inrepparttar stock market. I get to see first handrepparttar 149757 success or failure of our clients. Eighty percent of our clients are male. But I’d wager that eighty percent ofrepparttar 149758 successful stock traders are women.

Based on this experience, I began to wonder why is it that women tend to be better investors than men. I thought about it over and over, and I could not ignorerepparttar 149759 facts. Women make successful investors.

But why? I think it comes down to three simple words: EGO, EGO, EGO. The one thing that most men have in common is a big ego. Men tend to let their egos make their decisions for them. They hold when they should sell. They buy in for fear of missing out on that one big opportunity. In other words, they invest not to getrepparttar 149760 best deal out ofrepparttar 149761 market but invest so that they look good (or not look bad).

Usually when people think of investing, they think of taking chances and risks. Butrepparttar 149762 truth is that investing has much more to do with emotional intelligence than most people realize. Emotional intelligence isrepparttar 149763 ability to think objectively about a situation and not get too emotionally involved in it. Women, in general, possess a high emotional intelligence.

This quality makes women great investors. Rather than investing according to what will make them look good, women will invest according to a plan—not according to what mood they are in or whether they will be “right” or “wrong".
