 Applying Behavioral Economics Inside an Investment Firm - 24th May 2018

stefan Lundbergh event1.jpg 

This interactive discussion covered the consequences for an investment firm of internalizing a behavioral economics mindset. Accepting our human nature will have significant impact on our understanding of the global economy. This has consequences for organization design, culture, strategic asset allocation and manager selection. There are no silver bullets, but there are ways to become a better investor in an uncertain and largely unpredictable world.

The presentation highlighted how our human nature influence the decisions that we make as investors. It is about the soft factor that drives the hard results.

  • Diversity in both models and people are central to better understand the world. Individual behavioral biases and group dynamics are crucial factors impacting our decisions. It is easy to say, but difficult to internalize in an organization.

 

Four examples to have discussed:

  • What are the challenges of only using the neo-classical toolbox?
  • What are the unintended consequences of investment guidelines?
  • Can scenario thinking help us construct more robust investment portfolios?
  • What to look for in an external manager, in addition to the hard data?

 Speaker : Stefan Lundbergh is Director of Cardano Insignts and a non-executive board member of the Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund(AP4).

Gender Diversity.jpg  

 

CFA Society Norway and NBIM hosted an event to address the need for diversity in investment management. Diversity is one key pillar of CFA Institute's Future of Finance program. Women are a minority in investment management across global markets, making them the "universal diversifier".  CFA Institute believe an initial focus on gender diversity will yield lessons applicable to other dimensions of diversity.

Alexandra Morris, CIO of Skagen, discussed gender diversity in the investment management industry. In her presentation "From Eve to Women in Front-End Finance", she gave her perspective and draw on the results from a research project conducted in the financial industry in Norway. The project was initiated by The Norwegian Securities Dealers Association(VPFF) to identify challenges and provide insights for practitioners on how to close the gender gap.
