Applied Behavioral Finance

Program description: Behavioral finance combines psychology and finance – contending that preconceptions and cognitive errors lead investors to misinterpret events and overlook opportunities. While behavioral finance is relatively new to most investors, its basic premise is not. In fact, fundamentals of behavioral finance are as old as mankind itself. The dynamics of human nature – the ingrained switches that trigger powerful emotions of love, hate, greed, courage, fear – are largely unchanged; only the settings in which we play them out are different.

Complimentary for all
