FINANCE FOR NORMAL PEOPLE LUNCHEON
July 30, 2019 | Union Club of BC

Join us for a luncheon with special guest speaker, Professor Meir Statman.  

SESSION ABSTRACT
Presentation: "Finance for Normal People: How Investors and Markets Behave"

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.
