In recent years, the R&D investment of listed companies has become increasingly dependent on the influence of executive teams. The executive team plays a role in accurately grasping the development direction, promoting the implementation of enterprise development strategies, and formulating rigorous R&D innovation strategies in the R&D investment of listed companies. Analyze the impact of executive team characteristics on research and development investment of listed companies based on this role. Through analysis, it can be seen that the age of the executive team can hinder the R&D investment of listed companies, and the proportion of female executives can weaken the R&D investment process of listed companies. Limiting the tenure of the executive team can help promote R&D investment of listed companies, and recruiting executive teams with rich international experience can help enhance R&D investment of listed companies.
