The main question of this research is to identify the impact of demographic factors such as: gender, age, marital status, education, job status and income on the level of risk tolerance and risk-taking of real investors. The statistical population of the present study was real people who are active on the stock exchange. The sample size was 384 individuals.

Finally, in order to demonstrate the validity of the research model findings, the fitting indexes of structural equation models were used by partial least squares method.
