Yeah, but how much can they bench press?

While men play games and want to brag about their winnings, women are more objective and focused when it comes to investing their money. 

There are more men than women in the financial industry, but that does not mean that they are the better of the two when it comes to investing money, The Street reports.

The results of survey conducted by Barclays and Lebury Research showed that women are better than men as investors. The ladies tend to do more research, take fewer risks, and are more patient than men.

Females also are more prone to follow a buy-and-hold strategy than the most guys as well. It is the same reason the girls are better poker players too.

Women are less impulsive and averse to taking risks, according to LouAnn Lofton, author of Warren Buffet Invests Like a Girl—And Why you Should, Too. Ms. Lofton also conveyed that women are more likely to seek information that challenges their own assumptions. 

The Street advises that is best to look at investing from a long-term perspective and to rebalance an investment portfolio on a yearly basis … regardless of how much weight you can lift.
