    Suzanne Duncan with SSgA’s Center for Applied Research will discuss whether gender specific differences in investing are contributing to the industry’s failure to deliver consistent alpha and helping investors achieve long-term goals.  Suzanne will examine demographic results, gender differences in investment decision making, and potential consequences of a gender gap.  Thoughts on how the industry can evolve to a more balanced state will also be shared. Lastly, Suzanne will preview an upcoming study conducted by the Center for Applied Research which assesses investor motivations and how they could potentially be leveraged to achieve better investment outcomes.
