The AAII Cleveland Chapter presents...


"Behavioral Finance and the Case for Systematic Decision-Making Processes"

    Discussed by:

    Wesley R. Gray, Ph.D.
    Executive Managing Member, Empiritrage LLC

Wesley Gray will make the case that humans are not 100% rational beings as some economists assume. He will show how our fundamental biases detract from optimal investing activities and argue, based on empirical evidence, that we should utilize systematic decision-making processes in our investing activities. He will highlight model-driven decision-making versus expert-driven, or “gut instinct” decision-making. Gray will also outline the argument that using simple models rather than expert recommendations should improve your investing outcomes.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
The fundamentals of human bias and its effects on decision-making
An overview of the academic studies related to the subject of model versus expert decision-making
An understanding of why simple models outperform experts
