FINE 446 Behavioural Finance (3 credits)

Offered by: Management (Desautels Faculty of Management)

Overview

Finance : This course will focus on how, why and to what extent our "humanness" affects decision making pertaining to financial issues. Until Kahneman and Tversky came out with their landmark work, known as prospect theory, economics was based on the notion that individuals, companies, and even countries make decisions based on their financial self-interest. In fact this is one of the tenets of modern portfolio theory. Topics covered in the course include loss aversion, the disposition effect, the framing effect, and the endowment effect.
