An interesting fact is that when it comes to individual investors trading stocks, women tend to have better performance than men do. Interestingly enough, there are far fewer female investors than there are male investors. When it comes to investing in Vietnam, the same applies, and actually, the trend is even stronger. Women tend to avoid stocks and favour safer investments like real estate and even safer investments such as gilts. However, we should always keep in mind that stocks returns over the long-term are much higher than real estate ones. In other words, investors have to make a choice between safety and high returns. Unfortunately, you cannot have both.
