The most popular investment instruments among Russians have been announced

The most popular investment instruments for Russian citizens are savings accounts in banks, foreign

currency, real estate, life insurance and cryptocurrencies, according to a study by the World Gold

Council (WGC).

“Top 5 most popular investment products in Russia: savings accounts, foreign currency, real estate, life

insurance and cryptocurrencies”, the experts found out.

In addition, according to their data, men and women have different attitudes towards investing, but the

main difference lies in their attitude to risk. Thus, men prefer a short-term approach and are more

aggressive in making investment decisions; many consider investing as a hobby (46%).

Women tend to take a less risky approach and seek stability: 78% of respondents reported that they

invested in savings accounts in the past year, and less than a quarter (24%) of female investors use

fluctuations in the financial markets as an investment opportunity.

At the same time, investment portfolios in Russia are relatively less diversified: the average number of

products in it is 2.7 versus 3.4 for investors in the rest of the world, the WGC notes. And gold, in

particular, is the sixth most popular investment asset among Russian investors.

At the same time, 79% of them are considering investing in gold in the future, and 57% admit this

possibility, despite the fact that they have never invested in gold before. However, despite the existing

interest, only 16% of those surveyed said that they currently own it. Young investors aged 25-34 are

most interested in gold: 17% of them reported that they invested in the past year, and 27% said they

would definitely invest in gold in the future.
