Course programme

Financial Economics is endowed with a foundation of rich theory. However, the quest for a better understanding of corporate financial decisions and of the behavior of financial markets is never ending. There is now an increasing acceptance of the fact that theories of financial decision making and asset price behaviour has to incorporate the psychology of the actors involved. The recent crises in world markets have only strengthened this view. Behavioural Finance - the youngest strain of thought in finance - seeks to incorporate the psychological biases of decision makers into models that explain the economic underpinnings of firm and market behaviour. Behavioural finance uses insights from individual and group psychology to understand the persistent biases that are observed in financial decision makers. It uses these insights to draw conclusions about the impact on markets and prices.
