Roberto Wessels has a long experience both in practice (Fortis Investments, Arcas - Wessels, Ross & Roll, Chase Manhattan Bank) and academia (University of Texas, University of Rochester, Erasmus University, Leyden University) in various capacities.
He currently likes to supervise the following topics in the area of Gender bias:
- Gender bias and investment choice: women tend to invest less in the stock market than men. Is this because women are more risk averse, or are there other reasons for this behavior.
- Gender bias and board membership: women tend to be underrepresented in the board room. Can this be explained by the lower risk tolerance of women? Or is this just discrimination?
