Behavioral finance theories can help explain why investors sometimes make poor decisions. Bob will help us unpack these important questions:
What are practical ways to avoid making bad decisions?
How can we prevent ourselves from making investment mistakes due to emotions?
And what are the most dangerous mental traps investors may fall into now?
Designed to be interactive, informative and fun, “Training the Investor Brain” seeks to challenge perceptions and raise awareness of how our emotions can unintentionally de-rail investment strategies. More important, it also offers tools and tactics designed to help individuals counter behavioral biases and move them toward their investment goals.
