Age Neutral investing behaviour

According to an “Investing Sentiment Survey” Generation Y investors are conservative investors and invest more like their Baby Boomer parents, despite their long-term time horizon,
"Gen Y is investing more like their parents and grandparents, many of whom grew up in the shadow of the Great Depression. Similarly, many Gen Y's reached investing age during the 'dot-com' bust, lived through 2008's Great Recession and continue to experience significant economic uncertainty and market volatility today"
Looks to me like attitudes to risk are age-neutral. Dick Stroud
