A Practical Application of Behavioural Finance for your Investment & Trading Strategy


Your behavioural DNA is at the heart of investing and trading. Learn why many professionals around the world are now benefiting from greater behavioural self-awareness, while avoiding costly financial mistakes. 

This interactive workshop will enable you to better understand your nature-nurture signature, in terms of biological survival programming vs. environmental influences that shape your decision-making process.   

A deep-dive review of the top investor bias will also be covered, notably emotional (feeling-based) and cognitive (mental pressures). Why they happen and how to monitor them, using practical strategies.

Most importantly, all students will develop tailored approaches to mitigate the effects of behavioural biases across a variety of challenges, including live trading, investment policy and client engagement.


  • Improve your bottom-line equity performance, apply more diligent risk management, behavioural bias optimisation and build a systematic trading process.
  • Gain deeper understanding of Behavioral Finance and Technical Analysis principles, to design better investment solutions and help clients make better investing decisions.
  • How Behavioral Finance bias affects HNW clients, including herding, overconfidence and loss aversion. All supported with practical mitigation and optimisation strategies.
