The Human Brain on Investing: Implications of Investor Psychology

Investment returns are often thought of as a purely quantitative product of markets, risk, timing, or expertise. For investors, the emotional experience plays an equally important role. This presentation is a brief "user's manual" of the human brain on investing: exploring how emotions influence decision-making, how even objective ideas are subject to individual perception, and how money may influence cognition. Employing live audience-participation experiments, the presentation focuses on a behavioral view of how markets function and the role of the media. It can produce a new perspective on the client experience, and in turn help us become better stewards of our own wealth and future.
