Returns to Education and Risky Financial Investment

By S. Brown, G. Garino and K. Taylor

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the relationship between wages, human capital and investment in financial assets with risky returns at the individual level. To explore this relationship from an international perspective, we analyse individual level data from the British Household Panel Survey, the German Socio-Economic Panel and the U.S. Panel Study of Income Dynamics. Our findings suggest that investment in financial assets with risky returns is positively associated with returns to human capital investment
