Women traditionally are thought to be more conservative in managing money. But a recent survey says that women banking executives are taking more risks than their male counterparts.
In the increased focus on equal treatment and equal pay between men and women, little attention has been pxaid to how women and men function differently in similar roles. The authors of a Bundesbank research report are saying political forces in Europe should take these different role performances to heart in formulating public policy.
What this implies about American women in executive positions is unclear since the report was based on European banks. A similar report conducted on women in management positions across the globe would have greater impact.
