The survey, conducted by DSP Mutual Fund in association with research agency Nielsen, showed that 13 percent women were forced to make investment decisions due to their husband's death or divorce, while only 30 percent chose this path because they wanted to.
Husbands played a bigger role in introducing investing to women (40 percent) as compared to fathers (27 percent). On the other hand, 40 percent men were introduced to investing by their fathers, followed by their colleagues (35 percent).
Only 12 percent women said their investing choices were completely theirs while investing in market-based instruments like stocks, equity, mutual funds as against 31 percent men- a figure 2.6 times lower.
