The Psychology of Volatility

Office Hours with Professor Meir Statman

How can financial advisors help investors during these difficult times? According to behavioral finance expert Meir Statman, acknowledging our own feelings can help address clients’ anxieties and lead them with sound decision making.

Listen to the replay of Meir’s recent call with Avantis Investors™ answering questions from advisors. Meir speaks to:

  • Identifying the cognitive biases behind your clients’ requests

  • Navigating different types of clients and their reactions

  • Tips for calming investors’ fears

Understandably, conversations today go beyond a portfolio. Making close, personal connections with people is also important in these uncertain times.

Meir is the Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance at the Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University, a sought-after specialist in behavioral finance and a consultant to Avantis Investors. His work focuses on why people make the financial decisions they do and how these decisions are reflected in financial markets.
