The AAII Connecticut Chapter presents...


"Investing Rationally in an Irrational World"

    Discussed by:

    Pat Dorsey, CFA
    President, Sanibel Captiva Investment Advisers
    Please note: Pat Dorsey is the former director of equity research at Morningstar for over 10 years, and is also the former intellectual lynchpin of Fox TV's "Bulls & Bears."

Investing Rationally in an Irrational World: Successful investing is not dependent upon more brains, more information or faster computers. What separates great investors from the herd is their ability to control the cognitive biases that inhibit rational decision-making. Understanding how and when your own mind may be your portfolio’s worst enemy is the first step toward making better financial decisions. In this talk, Pat Dorsey will show you how to recognize and avoid the most common mental biases, in addition to discussing how he is positioning client portfolios in light of the current market environment.
