The Science of Financial Decisions

Join The Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa and Paul Nixon, CFP® for a webinar on The Science of Financial Decisions.

In the webinar Paul will answer questions on Why do we buy the products and services that we do? Why is L’Oreal’s tagline “Because you’re worth it”, a stroke of marketing genius? Why did the field of marketing leapfrog finance decades ago?

Paul will delve a little deeper into some science behind decision-making and what chemicals are being released by your adrenal glands when you make decisions under different circumstances. He will also zoom into investment decisions by exploring the concept of “risk behaviour” that deconstructs our decision making when faced with the tricky construct of “risk”.

Paul will further explore the topics of Neurobiology, Behavioural Finance and Prospect Theory. The agenda for this session will cover:

  • The second generation of behavioural finance
  • An updated model of money choice
  • The COVID-19 behaviour tax
  • Building the future “behavioural portfolios”
