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


Learn how to gain an edge with applied Behavioral Finance, using a blend of market & mind strategies in our new VUCA world. Post pandemic, the V-shape recovery is proving to be a rollercoaster ride for market participants. YTD “irrational exuberance” is strong, with the FOMO (fear of missing out) bias hitting record extremes. Now is a great opportunity to reassess your market & mind performance by attending our CFA course.

Investor behavioural biases are amplified by an ongoing disruptive and fast changing market environment. Latest research shows that investors can use behavioural finance strategies to improve their bottom-line equity performance, apply more diligent risk management, behavioural bias optimization and build a systematic trading process.

The problem is that most of these investors are not fully aware of their behavioural patterns. This is also because they work on a subconscious supercomputer level. Ron William, CFTe, NLP, of IntensiChi, will teach you how to overcome costly human errors, in order to become the best version of yourself and “be in the zone”, either for your own trading portfolio or client/business management.

This interactive presentation will include latest research and techniques within the area of Peak Performance, Neuroscience and Mindfulness/Stress Response Management (SRM).

Risk Assessment Profiling will also be included based on a combination of psychometric tests and Behavioural Portfolio Analysis and Scenario Planning/Decision Science.

This will be supported by a wide range of market and trader specific case studies, including a review of top behavioural biases, such as herding, overconfidence and loss aversion. All supported with practical mitigation and optimisation strategies.

Performance coaching sessions will also be offered to help achieve personal andprofessional goals, while also developing resilient strategies in a disruptive UVA world; as effective leaders, teams and risk-takers.
