Women are better investor than men.
It’s not an opinion, but a fact borne out by extensive research on the topic.
In a 2008 study the Hedge Fund Research Organisation found that funds under female management significantly outperformed those managed by men for nine straight years.
Crédit Suisse did a study in 2012 in which they tracked the shares of large corporations worth more than US$10-billion.
Shares of firms with female board members outperformed those of male-only firms by 26 percent.
Whitfield asked Ingram to explain why women are better investors than men.
