Perceptions of Epistemic Vs. Aleatory Uncertainty Affect Stock Investment

Investors’ perceptions of uncertainty vary along two independent dimensions: (i) epistemic (knowable) uncertainty; and (ii) aleatory (random) uncertainty. The more investors perceive market uncertainty to be epistemic (aleatory), the more sensitive they are to their own level of ignorance (risk preference), and they manage this uncertainty by seeking advice (diversifying).
