Publisher's Summary

This program explains why investors (possibly your clients) make such poor decisions with their money. Why do investors constantly chase returns? Why do they buy mediocre investments that underperform the indexes? Why do they leave their money in investments that lose money yet are unwilling to sell until they increase in value? If you can understand your own behavior with money, you will become a much better investor and earn returns that will last your whole life.

  • 1: How overconfidence bias creates poor investment decisions.
  • 2: How the endowment effect stops you from selling bad investments.
  • 3: How sunk cost fallacy causes you to own investments until they are worthless.
  • 4: How status quo bias makes change more difficult.
  • 5: How framing and anchoring motivates you to spend more.
  • 6: The seven seven steps in picking an outstanding financial advisor.
  • 7: The five critical concepts in creating a successful portfolio.

These are the concepts you will see in behavioral investing.

Clumsy narration

Narrator can't seem to narrate smoothly, riddled with errors, mispeaking, stuttering, and re-reading in some cases. The content is basic, but interesting and easy to consume. But the narration is distracting
