    This paper includes a study of the mutual fund market investors during a selected time period. The reader is given a descriptive picture of how people in different age groups have  acted  in  conjunction  with  the  last  major  financial  crisis.  It  has  been  studied whether people in the different age categories have saved, purchased or sold during this time  period  based  on  theories  and  analytic  material  from  one  of  the  largest  fund operators in Sweden. The result enlightens people’s activity and risk appetite in relation to the fund market. The essay results in an explanation of the underlying cause of the behavior        of         the         people         in         the         different         age         categories. The paper assumes that the market is cyclical and that more crises will occur in the future. The most recent crisis developed during the years 2007-2008 and has therefore been  selected  to  represent  the  analyzed  period.  Among  other  things,  a  general hypothesis  was  applicable  to  recurring  tendency  of  nonprofessional  retail  client  in extreme market situations to buy fund shares at a high value and sell them at low value in the market. The starting point was to criticize this hypothesis, which clearly turned out   to   be   in   favor   for   one   of   the   mutual   funds   that   have   been   observed. The result shows that more people in the middle age save more than those in their young years as well as those in the retirement age. The conclusion of the study shows that when this crisis occurred there were no major withdrawals from any of the mutual funds. In fact the sales transaction was reduced in the period of time from the peak of the stock market in 2007 to the time market touched the ground in 2008.I denna uppsats undersöks fondmarknadens investerare under en vald tidsperiod. Läsaren ges en beskrivande bild av hur personer i olika ålderskategorier har agerat i samband med den senaste stora finanskrisen. Det har studerats, med stöd av teorier och analysmaterial från en av Sveriges största fondaktörer, huruvida personer i de olika ålderskategorierna har sparat under denna period. Resultatet belyser personers aktivitet och riskbenägenhet i förhållande till fondmarknaden. Uppsatsen mynnar ut i en förklaring till vad som är och kan vara bakomliggande orsaker till beteendet hos personerna i de olika ålderskategorierna. Undersökningen utgår från att marknaden är cyklisk och att fler kriser kommer uppkomma i framtiden. Den senaste krisen ägde rum under år 2007-2008 och har därför valts ut för att representera den tidsperiod som avser att analyseras. Bland annat har en generell hypotes testats gällande att icke-professionella kunder har en återkommande tendens att i extrema marknadslägen köpa vid uppgång och sälja vid nedgång i de utvalda tillväxtmarknadsfonderna. Utgångspunkten var i detta hänseende att förkasta denna hypotes, vilket tydligt visade sig stämma i en av de fonder som studerats. Resultatet visar i korthet att fler personer i medelåldern investerar mer än de i ungdomens år och pensionsåldern. Slutsatsen av undersökningen visar på att när detta krisläge uppstod skedde inga större uttag ur någon av fonderna. De facto minskar säljtransaktionerna överlag från toppnoteringen på börsen under år 2007 till bottennoteringen år 2008
