The Last Hurrah Effect: End-Of-Week and End-Of-Month Time Periods Increase Financial Risk-Taking

Using a unique panel dataset of peer-to-peer lending loans, combined with a lab experiment, we find evidence for an end-of-period effect, whereby investors are more likely to invest in riskier loans at the end-of- week or end-of-month. These investments also have significantly worse returns relative to other days.
