Do women invest differently than men? 

Etoro U..S CEO Lule Demmissie said when looking at broad investment trends, particularly in more volatile markets, female investors tend to opt toward more conservative and diversified strategies. 

"You also see the conservatism in terms of what kind of investments they may pick. For example, women over and diversified instruments or robots, et cetera, which is there's nothing wrong with that. How you play the market is the way you, you know, you feel comfortable in doing that," Demmissie said.

So one of the things you see about women investing is that if you look at it, the arc a little longer than even 10 years, let's look at it from an arc of 40 years. You see, women investors buy essentially points of like 10% each time growing in their participation.

 Just 40 years ago, women made up less than 18% of the marketplace, right? And today they are neck to neck with their male counterparts. And their participation rate for markets. Now they always sort of when markets get a little volatile, they may back up a little and go into cash more. You do see that conservatism. 

You also see the conservatism in terms of what kind of investments they may pick. For example, women over and diversified instruments or robots, et cetera, which is there's nothing wrong with that. How you play the market is the way you, you know, you feel comfortable in doing that. But definitely, women have become a significant, if not an equal, depending on when you see it participant in the marketplace.
