Willingness to invest in higher risk funds in Sweden 2018, by age group

The oldest age group, from 56 to 76 years, seemed to be more risk averse than the younger age groups in Sweden in 2018. While 54 percent of respondents in the age group from 18 to 34 years, and 56 percent from the age group from 35 to 55 years were willing to trade away safety for a chance on higher return, only 42 percent in the age group from 56 to 76 years were willing to do so.

Would you be willing to invest in funds with a higher risk to have a chance to higher return?
