Course Description


The performance of financial markets is directly related to the sentiments of market participants. Positive market sentiment leads to a strong market whilst negative market sentiment drives a bearish one — which can lead to a financial crisis. Traditional finance methods fail to incorporate these psychological factors and usually assumes that the market is trading at irrational levels. On the other hand, behavioural finance explains how fear, greed, hope, anger, sadness, happiness, panic, climate change and non-traditional factors affect the overall performance of a market. It is important to understand the psychology of the market before investing. Behavioural finance is a powerful tool that helps investors to build a successful investment portfolio in the current volatile market.

This GLOMACS training course in Behavioural Finance provide a unique opportunity to current/potential investors and financial analysts to understand the psychology of the market. This training course shows how emotions drive the financial market system. Furthermore, delegates will learn about market sentiment, rational and irrational behaviour, noise trading, over confidence and low confidence, behavioural biases, loss aversion, overreaction, underreaction, managerial hubris, technical trading (momentum and contrarian) and the latest development in behavioural finance. Delegates will have a deeper understanding about the financial consequences of behavioural biases.

This training courses will highlight:

  • The Rise and Fall of Neoclassical Finance
  • The Rise and Rise of Behavioural Finance
  • The Financial Consequences of Behavioural Biases
  • Behavioral Investment Strategies I & II
  • Recent Developments in Behavioural Finance


At the end of this training courses, you will learn to:

  • Identify the behavioural biases, heuristics and framing effects that present obstacles to maximising the value derived from corporate financial and investment decisions
  • Assess how both individual financial decision making and behaviour affect investment outcomes in financial markets
  • Highlight the relevant issues that arise in comparisons between efficient ('economically rational') markets and less understood but more realistic behavioural ('partially rational' or 'irrational') markets
  • Demonstrate how educated investors and corporate decision makers can overcome these behavioural biases, heuristics and framing effects to improve their corporate financial and investment decisions
  • Demonstrate an understanding of current market dynamics
