Behavioral finance - Virtual

​​What is Behavioral finance?

The standard rational paradigm of the last fifty years has been highly successful in explaining the movements of financial markets. However, anomalies have been accumulating that are difficult to explain in terms of the standard rational paradigm, many of which are consistent with recent findings from psychology. Behavioral finance makes this connection, applying insights from psychology to financial economics. It puts a human face on the financial markets, recognizing that market participants are subject to biases that have predictable effects on prices. It thus provides a powerful new tool for understanding financial markets and one that complements, rather than replaces, the standard rational paradigm.

At its core, behavioral finance analyses the ways that people make financial decisions. Besides the impact on financial markets, this also has relevance to corporate decision making, investor behavior, and personal financial planning. Our psychological biases have real financial effects, whether we are corporate managers, professional investors, or personal financial planners. When we understand these biases, we can make better decisions ourselves, and better understand the behaviors of others and of markets.
