The decision to invest in the stock market is an important element of households’ financial decision-making, yet many households avoid investing. The lecture will introduce a key factor influencing investment decisions: how people view stockholders. Survey evidence from approximately 8,500 participants across eleven countries shows that a large majority of respondents view stockholders negatively on identity-relevant characteristics – they are perceived as greedy, gambler-like, and selfish individuals. Linking survey data obtained through the LISS panel with administrative data of Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reveals that these negative perceptions strongly predict households’ stock market participation with a magnitude comparable to leading alternative determinants. The talk will then discuss experimental evidence suggesting a causal relationship: if people’s views about stockholders become more positive, they become more likely to choose stock-related investments. In addition, the talk will discuss the stereotypical origins of people’s views of stockholders.
