Gin and Topic Talks: Are Financial Markets Too Male? by Professor Dan Ladley

After the last financial crisis politicians, regulators and the media blamed some of the huge losses on the “Wolf of Wall Street” culture of financial trading. This excessively masculine environment was fuelled by testosterone – the hormone that effects our willingness to take risks. Whilst for our ancestors this governed fight or flight, for traders it determines their willingness to speculate in the market. Higher levels mean bigger gambles. In this talk I discuss how changing the gender balance in financial markets would effect risk and the likelihood of crashes along with how the bonus culture of financial trading may make change difficult.
