Abstract

The study's main aim is to investigate the change in investment behaviour of Indian women investors. The study also highlights significant gaps for further research. The study has used a seven-step methodology to find out the significant changes in the investment behaviour of women in India. Articles which were explicitly related to the investment decisions of women are included in the study. Forty-seven articles have been used to find significant changes in women's investment behaviour, which ranges from 2008 to 2021. The study found that earlier, men dominated the country's investment culture, but now women are coming forward to participate in investment culture. Women are better investors than men as they are more disciplined and better savers. With the significant changes in capital markets and increased women empowerment and education efforts, they are moving from risk aversion to risk-taking. The investment behaviour of Indian women investors is influenced by internal agents, external agents, investor attributes and behavioural biases.
