Some people exhibit an exceptionally brilliant business sense, which may be a result of a particular gene they possess - says a new study.

California Institute of Technology researchers believe they have found a 'Midas touch' gene, which makes some people brilliant at business deals.

Inherited from parents, the gene variation called MAOA-L allows a person to make better decisions when it comes to risky financial deals. Such people are happy to take gambles - but only if the odds are in their favor.

MAOA-L is linked with the brain chemicals serotonin, which affects mood and dopamine, which is involved in decisions.
