Portfolio Choice in the Presence of Nontradeable Income: An Experimental Analysis
This paper reports the results of experiments on portfolio choice in the presence of nontradeable income. The nontradeable income part could either be riskless or risky (background risk). In many cases, we observe behavior which is qualitatively consistent with the predictions of normative theory. However, correlations between financial and nontradeable wealth are neglected. The computation of aggregated risk profiles helps subjects to partly overcome the deviations from normative theory due to neglect of correlations.
