PhD Thomas Oberlechner

Behavioral Finance has evolved significantly in recent years, moving beyond its traditional focus on general biases and non-rational processes that affect investors as a whole. A new generation of behavioral finance has emerged that emphasizes how individual investors, both professionals and clients, differ in their behavioral tendencies that drive their decisions.

This presentation will explore the powerful impact of psychological and behavioral forces on financial decisions, and showcase the specific behavioral areas that determine successful investment decision making. Attendees will see how cutting-edge technology can assist financial professionals and investment teams in identifying their own behavioral strengths and weaknesses, optimizing their decision-making process, and ultimately enhancing their performance. Newest behavioral technology can also assist financial institutions in making better-informed hiring decisions and enable asset allocators to evaluate and select fund managers using predictive information that was previously unavailable.
