Topic: Our Behavioral and Cognitive Biases and How They Impact Our Investment Decisions
Speaker: Bob Seawright, Chief Investment & Information Officer, Madison Avenue Securities
We like to think we’re judges of a sort, carefully weighing the alternatives and possibilities before reaching a just and true verdict. Instead, we’re much more like lawyers, looking for anything, true or not, that we think might help to make our case and looking for ways to suppress that which hurts it. Bob’s presentation will examine the behavioral and cognitive biases that make decision-making so difficult for us and will suggest some ways for fighting these biases in investing and in life generally.
