With our studies and surveys we highlight current or fundamental issues of the capital markets. Our studies and surveys – published partly in co-operation with other parties – appear at irregular intervals.

Our surveys are mostly published in German language and can either be downloaded or ordered as printed versions.

How do shareholders inform themselves? What are their preferences regarding dividend payments? Do they regard shares as instruments of wealth building? These and other related questions are analysed by this study which was prepared by Prof. Dr. Pellens in co-operation with Deutsche Post DHL Group, Deutsches Akteininstitut and the German association of investor relation professionals. For the fourth time after 2004, 2008 und 2013 the study provides an unique and overview on the behaviour and preferences of private and institutional investors.
