This Funzing Experience:
Can psychological research help improve investment decisions? Emotions like fear and greed, attitudes and perceptual distortions can interfere with our financial decisions. What are the common errors and irrational thought processes that we should know about to enhance our success? Join one of the UK's best known Psychologists, Dr Glenn Wilson, Consultant to Behavioural Fusion Ltd, for an intriguing Funzing Talk, where the anxieties and ambitions that underlie our often obsessive relationship with money will be explored and how they might be controlled to our advantage.

It has been said that Economics is just a branch of Psychology and indeed there are many powerful emotions and distortions involved in our dealings with money and investments.

The desire to acquire wealth is a major driving force in human behaviour and our relationship with money says much about who we are. It does not necessarily make us happy (that depends on how we handle it) and it plays a role in many psychological disorders, ranging from anxiety and depression to hoarding, compulsive shopping and kleptomania.

The ways in which we behave irrationally with respect to money will be discussed, including confirmation bias, the illusion of control, the planning fallacy, sunk costs, delay discounting, loss aversion and the endowment effect. Understanding of these very human tendencies can help in the successful management of personal finances and institutional investments.

This talk should be of interest not only to high-flying entrepreneurs but also to anybody who has ever had concerns about "the pound in their pocket".

Venue: TT Liquor

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
