According to the research, there are key differences in the ways men and women invest, and men could have a lot to learn.

Think the stock market is a man's domain? Think again. This video is from the recent Women's Investing Conference held at Motley Fool headquarters in Alexandria, Va., which gathered women investors from all ages and walks of life to discuss how individual investors can get an edge on Wall Street and invest better.

In this segment, Motley Fool co-founders Tom and David Gardner form a panel with some of the Fool's top female writers to answer a host of questions about investing better and improving long-term financial health. Questions cover everything from how new investors should prepare to invest, investing mistakes and how to take them in stride, what men can learn from women as investors and vice versa, and one buy-and-hold growth stock pick to keep in your portfolio for the next 15 years.
