Insights from Thought Leaders

Fast-driving fund managers take more risk

Professor Melvyn Teo
Apr 2017

Sensation seeking is a personality trait defined by the search for experiences and feelings that are varied, novel, complex and intense; and by the readiness to take physical, social, legal, and financial risks for the sake of such experiences. Research has shown that CEOs with this personality trait take on more business risk, and sensation seeking retail investors exhibit riskier economic behaviour and trade more often. Yet, little is known about sensation seeking on the trading behavior of professional investors. In this podcast, Prof Melvyn Teo of SMU's Lee Kong Chian School of Business shares his study which examined the automobile ownership of hedge fund managers to gauge their proclivity for sensation seeking, and analysed their investment behaviour.
