Topic: Behavioral Finance: Overcoming our Biases
Speaker: Blair Shein, MBA, CFA, CFP, Vice President, Compass Financial Group
The field of behavioral finance tests traditional finance theory by taking a closer look at the way investors actually behave, the reasons why they behave the way that they do, the impact that behavior can have on their wealth, and what investors can do about these behavior traits. This discussion will attempt to answer some questions surrounding the topic of behavioral finance and address how investors can benefit from the research that has been done in this field.
