Event Registration - Putting Emotional Finance To Work

Tuesday, May 15, 2018
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
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
  • Market psychology
  • Improving stock returns
  • Emotional finance and asset management
  • Meeting clients’ emotional needs
