Behavioral finance has increasingly become part of mainstream finance—helping to provide explanations for our economic decisions by combining behavioral and cognitive psychological theory with conventional economics and finance.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, this reliable resource—part of the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance—provides a comprehensive view of behavioral finance by discussing the current state of research in this area and detailing its potential impact on investors, corporations, and markets.

Divided into six comprehensive parts, it skillfully:

  • Describes the fundamental heuristics, cognitive errors, and psychological biases that affect financial decisions
  • Discusses market inefficiency and behavioral-based pricing models
  • Explores corporate and executive behavioral finance and examines the behavioral influences involving their investment and financing decisions
  • Addresses how behavioral finance applies to individual and institutional investors' holdings and their trading endeavors
  • Shows how cultural factors and societal attitudes affect markets

Behavioral Finance contains the latest information from some of the leading practitioners and academics in this field. Engaging and accessible, this book provides a clear understanding of how people make financial decisions and their effects on today's markets.
