In this two-day meeting, we will consider how the fields of behavioural finance, economic psychology, financial socio-analysis and other related areas can enhance our understanding of financial behaviours. Papers exploring any Behavioural Finance issue will be considered, but those related to the influence of sentiment and mood on the decision-making of individuals (e.g. consumption, saving, borrow, investing) and/or corporations (e.g. financing, investing, pay-out policy), and the implications of such for markets and economic policy, will be particularly welcomed.
As usual, we will consider papers in all areas of common concern to those working in behavioural finance and related areas. These include processes underlying the financial judgments and decisions involved in investing, trading, forecasting, risk assessment, asset valuations, acquisitions, IPOs, asset pricing bubbles, financial crises, and other financial behaviours. As well as such associated cognitive phenomena as overconfidence, framing, loss aversion, herding, optimism, biased information search, and the money illusion, we are equally interested in drawing on emotional and psychodynamic perspectives, group psychology, personality theory including narcissism and psychopathology, and narratology in the context of the role story telling plays in all financial activity. We seek contributions relating to these issues at the level of markets and institutions of various types, households, corporations, boards and other financially active groups, individual and institutional investors and traders.
We will have dedicated PhD sessions supported by ICAEW’s Charitable Trusts and a Practitioner’s Round Table.
