How to Overcome Behavioral Biases to Improve Financial Decisions? - New York

Master Class: How to Overcome Behavioral Biases to Improve Financial Decisions, led by Professor Kevin Spellman.

 

We all like to think that we coolly examine news and other data, and then make fact-based adjustments to our business plans, portfolios, and personal choices. Dr. G. Kevin Spellman, CFA, will share research on ways people actually make decisions. It turns out that our emotions have much more influence than we would like to believe, and we often act in ways that are self-destructive because we are unaware of the behavioral foibles that drive us. Come to this event with an open mind. You'll learn things that save you money and help you capitalize on irrational markets.‚Äč

In this session you will:

  • Learn about several behavioral biases and take surveys to determine whether or not you have them.
  • Learn how biases impact specific financial decisions.
  • Receive helpful advice on how to overcome decision-making mistakes.
