Abstract

One of the fundamental goals of each investor is to improve the return on investment of individuals, but there are many and complex factors that affect these returns. This paper studies how household financial factors affect individual investment returns. I have proved that the richer the family knowledge and investment experience of investors, the higher the return on investment. This is one of the subjects covered by behavioral finance, and I support my claims with data.
