Handbook of Behavioral Finance Excerpt :

'The Handbook of Behavioral Finance is a comprehensive source of cutting-edge research on recent developments in behavioral finance.' – Long Range Planning 'As suits the jointly academic and practitioner audience, the technical level is low without being facile. (The Handbook would be a suitable reference for a senior undergraduate or master's level class in behavioral finance). Most chapters present simple econometric modelling of experimental, survey or revealed preference data. . . chapters are concise, coherent and clearly written.' – Susan Thorp, Journal of Pension Economics and Finance 'This book does an excellent job of presenting empirical evidence as to the role of selected psychological attributes on key investment behaviors and it should be valuable to investment professionals as a handbook. Professor Bruce has selected readings that clearly show that investors are more than logic machines. They have evolved brains which makes them susceptible to context and culture. The book wisely avoids making generalizations about a new behavioral financial paradigm which at this time is only in the early stages of development.' – Robert A. Olsen, California State University, Chico, US 'The breadth and depth of Professor Bruce's knowledge of behavioral finance and its implications for, and applicability to, all facets of investment decisions makes him as qualified as anyone I know to produce this Handbook. Those who absorb the insights and knowledge that this Handbook offers will prosper. But without it, they will dull their competitive edge both as investors and as educators. I am actually jealous I did not produce this Handbook myself!' – Arnold S. Wood, Martingale Asset Management, US The Handbook of Behavioral Finance is a comprehensive, topical and concise source of cutting-edge research on recent developments in behavioral finance. The Handbook is divided into three areas of interest. The first – Behavioral Biases – includes discussions on herding in

The Future of Finance Excerpt :

New banking and investment business models to navigate the post-financial crisis environment The financial crisis of 2007-2008 has discredited business models in the banking and fund management industries. In The Future of Finance, Moorad Choudhry and Gino Landuyt argue that banks must realign their business models, implying a lower return-on-equity; diversifying their funding sources; and increasing liquidity reserves. On the investment side, the authors discuss how diversification did not reduce risk, but rather amplified it, and failed to stabilize returns. The authors conclude that the clear lesson from the crisis is to know one's risk. A lesson that is best served by concentrating on assets and sectors that you understand. Examines the weaknesses in the business models of many institutions, as well as the theoretical foundation for professionals in the field of finance Identifies the shortcomings of Modern Portfolio Theory Addresses how investment managers can find new strategies for creating "alpha" and why they need to re-vamp their fee structures Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The Future of Finance will provide bankers and investment managers with a guide to realigning their businesses in order to prosper in the post-crisis financial markets.

Behavioral Finance The Second Generation Excerpt :

Behavioral finance presented in this book is the second-generation of behavioral finance. The first generation, starting in the early 1980s, largely accepted standard finance’s notion of people’s wants as “rational” wants—restricted to the utilitarian benefits of high returns and low risk. That first generation commonly described people as “irrational”—succumbing to cognitive and emotional errors and misled on their way to their rational wants. The second generation describes people as normal. It begins by acknowledging the full range of people’s normal wants and their benefits—utilitarian, expressive, and emotional—distinguishes normal wants from errors, and offers guidance on using shortcuts and avoiding errors on the way to satisfying normal wants. People’s normal wants include financial security, nurturing children and families, gaining high social status, and staying true to values. People’s normal wants, even more than their cognitive and emotional shortcuts and errors, underlie answers to important questions of finance, including saving and spending, portfolio construction, asset pricing, and market efficiency.

Regulating Competition in Stock Markets Excerpt :

A guide to curbing monopoly power in stock markets Engaging and informative, Regulating Competition in Stock Markets skillfully analyzes the impact of the recent global financial crisis on health and happiness, and uses this opportunity to put regulatory systems in perspective. Happiness is lost because of emotional and physical health deterioration resulting from the crisis. Therefore, the authors conclude that financial crisis prevention should be the focus of public policy. This book is the most comprehensive study so far on potential risks to the stock market, especially various forms of market manipulation that lead to mania and eventual crisis. Based on litigation cases from international stock markets, and borrowing multidisciplinary findings in the fields of finance, economics, accounting, media studies, criminology, legal studies, psychology, and medicine, this book is the first to provide thorough micro-level regulatory proposals rooted in financial reality. By focusing on securities trading, they apply antitrust measures to limiting monopolistic power that is used for the manipulation of investors' perception and monopolistic profit. These proposals are quantifiable, adjustable, inexpensive, and can be easily implemented by any securities regulating agency for real-time oversight and daily operations. The recommendations found here are intended to improve the fairness and transparency of the financial markets, thereby perfecting the market competition, protecting investors, stabilizing the market, and preventing crises Explores how avoiding crises can to contribute to a more scientific, health aware, and civilized economic and social development Written by a team of authors who have extensive experience in this dynamic field, including Nobel Laureate Lawrence R. Klein Since the founding of the first, organized stock exchange in Amsterdam 400 years ago, no systematic economic research results on stock markets have been implemented in stock market regulatio

Applied Asset and Risk Management Excerpt :

This book is a guide to asset and risk management from a practical point of view. It is centered around two questions triggered by the global events on the stock markets since the middle of the last decade: - Why do crashes happen when in theory they should not? - How do investors deal with such crises in terms of their risk measurement and management and as a consequence, what are the implications for the chosen investment strategies? The book presents and discusses two different approaches to finance and investing, i.e., modern portfolio theory and behavioral finance, and provides an overview of stock market anomalies and historical crashes. It is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to asset and risk management for bachelor’s and master’s students in this field as well as for young professionals in the asset management industry. A key part of this book is the exercises to further demonstrate the concepts presented with examples and a step-by-step business case.

Trading on Sentiment Excerpt :

In his debut book on trading psychology, Inside the Investor’s Brain, Rich­ard Peterson demonstrated how managing emotions helps top investors outperform. Now, in Trading on Sentiment, he takes you inside the science of crowd psychol­ogy and demonstrates that not only do price patterns exist, but the most predictable ones are rooted in our shared human nature. Peterson’s team developed text analysis engines to mine data - topics, beliefs, and emotions - from social media. Based on that data, they put together a market-neutral social media-based hedge fund that beat the S&P 500 by more than twenty-four percent—through the 2008 financial crisis. In this groundbreaking guide, he shows you how they did it and why it worked. Applying algorithms to so­cial media data opened up an unprecedented world of insight into the elusive patterns of investor sentiment driving repeating market moves. Inside, you gain a privi­leged look at the media content that moves investors, along with time-tested techniques to make the smart moves—even when it doesn’t feel right. This book digs underneath technicals and fundamentals to explain the primary mover of market prices - the global information flow and how investors react to it. It provides the expert guidance you need to develop a competitive edge, manage risk, and overcome our sometimes-flawed human nature. Learn how traders are using sentiment analysis and statistical tools to extract value from media data in order to: Foresee important price moves using an understanding of how investors process news. Make more profitable investment decisions by identifying when prices are trending, when trends are turning, and when sharp market moves are likely to reverse. Use media sentiment to improve value and momentum investing returns. Avoid the pitfalls of unique price patterns found in commodities, currencies, and during speculative bubbles Trading on Sentiment deepens your understanding of markets and supplies you with the tools
