About the Webinar:
Investment returns are often thought of as a purely quantitative product of markets, risk, timing, or expertise. As investors, our emotional experience plays an equally important role. Christian Newton guides us through a lighthearted “user’s manual” of the human brain: exploring how emotions influence decision-making, how even objective ideas are subject to individual perception, and how money can influence cognition. The presentation cites both academic research and employs live audience-participation experiments. It can produce a new appreciation for how we perceive investments, and ultimately better aid advisor clients as they think about their own wealth and future.
