Now On Demand.

Behavioral Finance plays an integral role in overall financial health. Through the evaluation of the Market Cycle of Emotions and Factor Based Investing, we’ll dive deeper into Behavioral Finance and the integral role it plays in the decision-making process and the overall financial health of an investor.

Key Points of Discussion:

  • Evolution of Advisor Value Proposition. How has value proposition changed over the years and how does it relate to your clients decision making processes.
  • The Market Cycle of Emotion. We’ll explore the idea behind emotional investing and how it ties into overall financial health.
  • Investment Hazards are Concerning. Advisors and clients encounter different pitfalls throughout the investment process, but is there a way to have your cake and eat it too?
  • Not all Factor Based Investing Strategies are Equal. When deployed correctly, Factors can potentially serve as an ideal solution to a number of behavioral biases.

Please remember that all investments carry some level of risk, including the potential loss of principal invested. They do not typically grow at an even rate of return and may experience negative growth. As with any type of portfolio structuring, attempting to reduce risk and increase return could, at certain times, unintentionally reduce returns.
