Leeds Business School and City University of London are conducting research on institutional investor decision-making in association with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries – and they are looking for your help.
The initiative aims to inform a better toolkit for investment professionals making financial decisions in the areas of investment advice, asset-liability matching, liability-driven investments and investment risk management, within pension schemes.
You can support this research by completing a research survey in which you will be asked to choose between two mutual funds based on real historical market data. The returns from the fund you choose will accumulate towards a donation which LBS and City will give to charity. We expect donations to be around £5 for each participant, but this will depend on which funds you choose and how well they perform.
The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete. You won't be asked for any personal identification information and all data will be handled anonymously and analysed in aggregate form. At the end of the survey, you will be directed to a page with the findings from our research so far.
