11 : 35 AM12:15 AMInvestment behavioural biases, being self-aware of our irrationality to mitigate itRoundtable

Event Details

Investor behaviours may deviate from logic or reason and rather be driven by emotional or cognitive biases. Those biases can exert significant influence on the investment decision process and have a detrimental impact on portfolio performance, specifically in the context of retirement savings. At a time when the not-solvent-enough pension systems transfer risk to end-savers, investment horizons increase due to longevity’s dynamics. Similarly, uncertainties are growing, biases represent major traps for investors. In addition, biases’ homogeneity across the financial community may create distortions and generate crowding investor patterns. Our experts will provide testimony on their level of biases awareness and share perspectives on how to handle them.
