Hi, I'm Dr. Daniel Walters, a professor at INSEAD studying investor decision making. Here's my faculty website: https://www.insead.edu/faculty-research/...el-walters and LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniel-j-walters/

I'm hoping to find investors to participate in a study about investment strategies. The purpose of the study is to examine how new investment strategies can improve returns. I can't share the exact hypothesis as that might invalidate the study, but all participants can receive a full debrief as well as be sent the findings of the study when data collection concludes. If you are selected to participate in the study, you will be given a $500 portfolio of stock investments which you will be allowed to trade for 3 months. At the conclusion of 3 months, you will receive the full value of your investment portfolio.

The requirements to participate in the study are that you
1. had at least $1,000 in stock market investments in 2018;
2. owned at least 2 stocks in 2018, and;
3. have access to the returns of your investments for 2018.
If you meet these requirements and would be willing to participate, please complete this 3-minute survey with 10 questions: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5347194/edc3e565ea31

This research is being conducted for academic purposes and all participation is anonymous.

Thank you for your help in this research!

Dear all,

Only 22 people have participated in the survey at this time. I'm hoping to screen at least 50 investors and select approximately 5 to participate in the 3 months study. Note: If you don't want to use your real email, you can use your forum username, or provide another way for me to contact you without revealing any personal information. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at daniel.walters@insead.edu
Dear all,

Because the target number of participants has been met, the survey is now closed. Thank you for your participation in the study.

Best,

Daniel Walters
