Abstract: This article aims to systematically review studies analyzing the influence of emotional intelligence (EI) on investor behaviors in developing countries (as defined by the United Nations Development Program) using PRISMA. In developing nations, the lack of investigation in this area is prevalent and nonexistent in some nations. Methods: EI and investor behavior-related papers in English were selected from ProQuest, EBSCO, and Google Scholar database searches in developing countries. Results: The review included 19 studies covering eight developing countries, extending the conclusion of a positive correlation between EI and investment decisions in growing regions. However, inconsistencies and gaps exist in the EI model adoption and investor behaviors. Evidence Limitation/Implications: Limitations include the need for extended EI and investor behavior dimensions and more geographic coverage. Important implication highlights include how EI helps investors enhance investment decision-making. Originality/value: This unprecedented PRISMA review of a comprehensive set of literature on the influence of EI on investor behavior in developing countries extends the current evidence base in this area.
