Abstract

L'objet de cet article est de mettre en lumière à partir de données empiriques les caractéristiques de l'investisseur individuel français. Un échantillon de 92 603 porteurs de valeurs mobilières réalisant des opérations entre 1999 et 2006 est étudié. Des statistiques descriptives sur les variables démographiques, les comptes détenus, les transactions réalisées ainsi que les portefeuilles sont présentées. Nos principaux résultats peuvent être résumés ainsi : le porteur français est en moyenne un homme âgé de 42 ans et habite l'Ile de France. Lorsqu'il détient un compte PEA, il le clôture avant la date à laquelle l'avantage fiscal est activé (5 ans). De nombreux investisseurs réalisent moins de 6 opérations entre 1999 et 2006 et seulement 1,62% des porteurs font plus de 1000 opérations sur cette période. Même si plus de la moitié des investisseurs diversifient leurs portefeuilles à l'international, 90% des transactions portent sur des titres français. Le nombre d'actions ordinaires différentes détenues augmente de 2005 à 2006, suggérant que les investisseurs diversifient de plus en plus leurs portefeuilles. Enfin, plus de 30% des porteurs ont investi entre 1999 et 2006 moins de 10 000 euros sur leur portefeuille.
