Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka individers riskbeteende vid investeringar samt få en djupare förståelse för arbitrage och den osystematiska risken som är involverad när en individ utnyttjar arbitragemöjligheter. För att undersöka detta har en avgränsning gjorts till oddsmarknaden och riskfritt arbitrageutnyttjande i form av Surebets. Detta har undersökts med hjälp av kvalitativ- och kvantitativ metod i form av en triangulering. Genom en enkätundersökning och intervjuer kunde ett kausalt samband identifiera beteendesvängningar hos individer när det kommer till vinst och förlust. Ett Eta2-test genomfördes och påvisade ett samband mellan individers riskbenägenhet och kunskapen om Surebets. Studien fann flera osystematiska risker för användarna kopplat till Surebets varav den största är spelbolagen och dess användaravtal. Avslutningsvis kan nollhypotesen förkastas med hjälp av Eta2-testet samt ett kausalt samband, vilket bevisar ett högre risktagande bland individer som utnyttjar arbitrage på oddsmarknaden.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate individuals' risk behavior during investments and to gain a deeper understanding of arbitrage and the unsystematic risk involved when an individual uses arbitrage opportunities. To investigate this a delimitation has been made to the odds market and the risk-free utilization of arbitrage in the form of Surebets. The method used to investigate this has been a qualitative and quantitative method in the form of a triangulation. Through a survey and interviews, a causal relationship could identify behavioral fluctuations in individuals when it comes to profit and loss cases. An Eta2 test was conducted and demonstrated a connection between individuals' risk behaviour and the knowledge of Surebets. The study found several unsystematic risks for users linked to Surebets, where the largest are the gaming companies and its user agreement. Finally, the null hypothesis can be rejected by means of the Eta2 test and a causal relationship, which proves a higher risk taking among individuals exploiting arbitrage opportunities on the odds market.
