Putting Emotional Finance to Work
Emotional finance is a new and very practical area in investment which recognises how forces beyond our conscious awareness help drive investment decisions and move markets. This talk will summarize the basic principles of this new paradigm, and then demonstrate how by understanding the key role the unconscious plays in investment, we can enhance our investment decisions, and predict the behavior of markets better.
Topics to be covered:
Emotional finance: beyond behavioural finance
The unconscious in investment
Improving stock returns
Emotional finance and asset management
Meeting clients’ emotional needs
