Tuesday, July 23rd | 4:00 to 5:30 pm | Wascana Country Club | Regina

Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance, Leavey School of Business, 
Santa Clara University

Meir Statman is the Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance at Santa Clara University. His research focuses on behavioral finance. He attempts to understand how investors and managers make financial decisions and how these decisions are reflected in financial markets. His most recent book is "Finance for Normal People: How Investors and Markets Behave," published by Oxford University Press.

The questions he addresses in his research include: What are investors' wants and how can we help investors balance them? What are investors' cognitive and emotional shortcuts and how can we help them overcome cognitive and emotional errors? How are wants, shortcuts and errors reflected in choices of saving, spending, and portfolio construction? How are they reflected in asset pricing and market efficiency?

Meir's research has been published in the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies, the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, the Financial Analysts Journal, the Journal of Portfolio Management, and many other journals.  The research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Research Foundation of the CFA Institute, and the Investment Management Consultants Association (IMCA).

Finance for Normal People: How Investors and Markets Behave

CFA Society Saskatchewan is excited to invite you, your spouse, your partner, your co-workers and distinguished leaders of the business community to join us, for a speaker presentation featuring Meir Statman on July 23rd at the Wascana Country Club. 

  • Behavioral finance is for normal people, like you and me, who are not irrational; we are mostly intelligent and usually "normal-smart." However, we can be "normal-foolish" and misled by cognitive errors, such as hindsight bias and overconfidence, as well as emotional errors, such as exaggerated fear and unrealistic hope. 
  • Professor Statman will discuss behavioral finance lessons by examining what we want and how we behave as normal consumers, savers, investors, and managers when making financial choices, understanding how our behavior affects financial markets.
  • The second generation of behavioral finance knowledge recognizes the full range of normal wants and benefits, distinguishing normal wants from errors and offering guidance on using shortcuts. Our "normal wants" provide answers to important finance questions, including saving and spending, portfolio construction, asset pricing, and market efficiency.
