Risk-taking behavior after COVID-19; global implications for financial markets and pensions

  • Martijn de Vries

This project analyzes the effects of a global asymmetric shock in risk aversion on investment opportunities. Subsequently, different pension schemes will be compared to gain insight into how pension funds can best absorb the shock. An overlapping generation model (OLG), in which the (unforeseen) impact of a disaster (such as COVID-19) causes a greater increase in risk aversion in younger generations, will be analyzed.

Netspar, Network for Studies on Pensions, Aging and Retirement, is a thinktank and knowledge network. Netspar is dedicated to promoting a wider understanding of the economic and social implications of pensions, aging and retirement in the Netherlands and Europe.
