WIS QLD Women & Wealth Luncheon

Do men and women make different financial decisions?

This event is SOLD OUT!

When it comes to investing and making financial decisions, most people want the same thing: the best returns with the lowest risk. But research now tells us a person’s gender can impact the way we make investment decisions.

Anatomical differences in male and female brains could explain differences in attitudes towards investment risk as well as determine the extent to which our emotions drive our money decisions.

Join us for lunch where Kajanga Kulatunga - Portfolio Specialist, NAB Asset Management  will discuss the role gender may play in decisions we make about money and will provide you with:

  • An understanding of why individuals may have different perceptions of risk
  • A practical understanding of what you can do to get the best outcomes from your savings journey.

Kajanga Kulatunga is an internationally renowned keynote speaker. He frequently presents at conferences, to trustee boards, advisers and investors. He has been featured internationally in both print and electronic media.

Kajanga specialises in Behavioural Economics and Global Assets, and leads multidisciplinary research in behavioural economics in collaboration with a range of academic institutions around the world. 

This is a not to be missed event and seats are limited so make sure you register early to secure your place!
