On October 8th, CFA Society Netherlands presents the 2015 edition of the Best Practices conference series. This year’s conference draws attention to the multi-dimensional character of Risk Management.
Is the investment industry focusing too much on one measure of risk, too dependent on the technical, quantifiable, standards-guided method of measuring, monitoring and mitigating risk? Are we missing crucial risk factors when we disregard human values, organizational culture, and technological progress when defining risk profiles and risk management processes?
We all know the discipline of risk management is an important and growing concern in our industry. And typically we concern ourselves with the technical and quantifiable. There is a school of thought, though, that is looking beyond the numbers and focuses on the people behind the models: Behavioral Finance. Behavioral finance focuses on the psychological and sociological issues related to financial decision making. Despite the powerful techniques we apply, in the end we are all human.
This event provides a unique insight into some of the lesser-known and hard to quantify but ever so important aspects of risk management, for instance, cyber security, herd behavior, risk-taking behavior, and organizational culture.
We hope to see you there!
