WHAT DO YOU SEE?
6 SYSTEM-1 SYSTEM-2
SO THESE TWO SYSTEM WORKS-
• System 1 operates automatically and rapidly. It requires little or no effort
and is not amenable to voluntary control.
• System 2 is effortful, deliberate, and slow. It requires mental activities that
may be demanding, including complex calculation.
7
SYSTEM-1
• Here are some examples of the automatic activities attributable to System 1, in rough order
of complexity.
 Detect that one object is nearer than another.
 Discern friendliness in a voice.
 Answer 2+1=?
 Drive a bicycle on an empty road.
 Comprehend simple sentences.
• All these mental events occur automatically and require practically no effort.
8
SYSTEM-2
• While the activities of System 1 normally run on an automatic pilot and are involuntary, the
operations of System 2 require attention and voluntary effort. Here are some examples of the
operations of system 2.
 Identify the no. of blinking arrows in the circus.
 Discern the voice of a friend in a crowded and noisy room.
 Walk at a speed faster than is natural for you.
 Control your behaviour in a social situation, even if you are in pain.
 Count the number of times the letter “a” occurs in a paragraph.
 Compare two Companies analysis report for overall value.
 Calculate the value of product of 11113x 737990.
 Pick holes in a complex argument.

BEHAVIORAL FINANCE, INTRODUCTION
“The investor’s chief problem, and even his worst enemy, is likely to be himself”- Benjamin Graham
“There are three factors that influence the market: Fear, Greed, and Greed.”- Market folklore
• Sooner or later, you are going to make an investment decision that winds up costing you a lot of
money.
• Why is this going to happen?
• You made a sound decision, but you are “unlucky”.
• You made a bad decision-one that could have been avoided.
• The beginning of investment wisdom:
• Learn to recognize circumstances leading to poor decisions
• Then, you will reduce the damage from investment blunder
15
WHAT IS BEHAVIORAL
FINANCE?
It is the study of the
influence of
psychology on the
behavior of investors
or financial analysts.
It also includes the
subsequent effects on
the markets.
16
It focuses on the fact
that investors are not
always rational,
have limits to their
self-control, and are
influenced by their
own biases.
WHAT IS BEHAVIORAL
FINANCE?
A field of finance that proposes psychology-
based theories to explain stock market
anomalies. Within behavioral finance, it is
assumed that the information structure and the
characteristics of market participants
systematically influence individuals' investment
decisions as well as market outcomes.
17
WHAT IS IT?
 Study that seeks to combine psychology, sociology and traditional finance.
 Helps explain why people make irrational financial decision.
18
WHAT IS IT IMPORTANT?
 It is necessary because technical “analysis assume” that people act rationally.

THEORY
Traditional finance includes:
• Both the market and investors are
perfectly rational
• Investors truly care about utilitarian
characteristics
• Investors have perfect self-control
• They are not confused by cognitive
errors or information processing
errors
EMH
BEHAVIORAL
FINANCE THEORY
Traits of behavioral finance are:
• Investors are treated as “normal”
not “rational”
• They actually have limits to their
self-control
• Investors are influenced by their
own biases
• Investors make cognitive errors that
can lead to wrong decisions
CONVENTIONAL VS BEHAVIORAL
Traditional Financial Theory
In order to better understand behavioral finance, let’s first
look at traditional financial theory.
Traditional finance includes the following beliefs:
• Both the market and investor are perfectly rational
• Investors truly care about utilitarian characteristics
• Investors have perfect self-control
• They are not confused by cognitive errors or information
processing errors
Behavioral Finance Theory
Traits of behavioral finance are:
• Investors are treated as “normal” not “rational”
• They actually have limits to their self-control
• Investors are influenced by their own biases
• Investors make cognitive errors that can lead to wrong
decisions
22
WHY BEHAVIORAL FINANCE?
• Conventional or modern finance is based on rational and logical theories, such as the capital asset
pricing model (CAPM) and the efficient market hypothesis (EMH).
• These theories assume that people, for the most part, behave rationally and predictably.
• One of the most rudimentary assumptions that conventional economics and finance makes is that
people are rational “wealth maximizers” who seek to increase their own well-being.
• Behavioral finance seeks to explain our actions, whereas modern finance seeks to explain the
actions of the “economic man”
23
BEHAVIORAL FINANCE – MICRO & MACRO
24
Micro-behavioral finance Macro-behavioral finance
• Analyzes behavioral biases which distinguish individual
investors from totally rational economic beings – homo
economicus – from neoclassical economics
• Questions totally rational decision-making
• States that behavioral biases have a profound impact on
decision-making and can drive suboptimal decision-
making and errors that directly contradict with traditional
finance
• Analyzes market anomalies that distinguish financial
markets from efficient markets assumed by traditional
finance
• At the same time questions this informational efficiency of
markets
• States that financial markets are impacted by behavioral
influences (market anomalies, bubbles, excess volatility,
limited arbitrage)
25
26
BEHAVIORAL FINANCE MAY ALSO BE DEFINED BY THE MODIFICATIONS IT HAS MADE TO A
STANDARD FINANCE FRAMEWORK
Here is a catch-all description given by Statman (2014):
Behavioral finance substitutes normal people for the rational people in standard finance.
It substitutes behavioral portfolio theory for mean-variance portfolio theory, and behavioral asset
pricing models for the CAPM and other models where expected returns are determined only by risk.
Behavioral finance expands the domain of finance beyond portfolios, asset pricing, and market
efficiency.
It explores the behavior of investors and managers in direct and indirect ways, whether by examining
brains in fMRIs or examining wants, errors, preferences, and behavior in questionnaires, experiments,
and the field.
Behavioral finance explores saving and spending behavior and it explores financial choices affected
by culture, fairness, social responsibility, and other expressive and emotional wants.

EVOLUTION OF
BEHAVIORAL
FINANCE
The case (Reading)
ARTICLE ON BF- CONCEPT.pdf
Standard finance theory is accepted world-wide from market
level perspective. But in1960s and 1970s, new wave in field of
finance has been started by psychologist, study of heuristics
found many biases and limit to cognitive resources, through
examining economic decisions.
It was started by study of Slovic (1969,1972) studied stock
brokers and investors.
Slovic (1972) states the money Game: “You are—face it—a
bunch of emotions, prejudices, and twitches, and this is all very
well as long as you know it.
Successful speculators do not necessarily have a complete portrait
of themselves, warts and all, in their own mind, but they do have
the ability to stop abruptly when their intuition and what is
happening out there are suddenly out of kilter. If you don’t know
who you are, this is an expensive place to find out.”
Recognition of the contribution that behavioural analysis is now
significant in financial economics was reflected in 2002 with
Awards of the Nobel Prize in economics to professor of
psychology, Daniel Kahneman, where he detailed the heuristics
and biases that occur when making decisions under uncertainty.
• Fast and successful development of behavioral finance (economics) from 1970s
• Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tverky (academic psychologists) – The most famous paper Prospect Theory: An Analysis of
Decision under Risk – Econometrica, 1979
• Prospect theory is cornerstone of behavioral finance, behavioral economics overall – Descriptive alternative to mainstream
expected utility theory
• Framing – Form versus substance, risk-seeking versus risk-aversion depending on losses or gains
• In 2002, Kahneman received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, despite being a research psychologist, for his work in
prospect theory, decision making and judgment under risk, i.e. in real world conditions. (Amos Tversky prem. died in 1996)

THE 3 IDEAS MAKE HIM GOT THE NOBEL PRIZE IN 2017
33 RICHARD THALER
THE BOOK- BY THALER
• Those 3 ideas developed by Richard
Thaler, that change the way we think and
behave:
• 1. Bounded rationality- mental
accounting
• 2. lack of self-control – dilemma/mental
illusion
• 3. nudges- push or a positive
reinforcement
34
35
Behavioral finance views
investors as “normal” but being
subject to decision-making biases
and errors. We can break down
the decision making biases and
errors into four buckets.
37
DECISION-MAKING ERRORS AND BIASES
SELF DECEPTION
• It limits to the way we learn.
• We mistakenly think we know more than
we actually do, and we tend to miss
information that we need to make an
informed decision.
38
HEURISTIC
SIMPLIFICATION
We can also scope out a bucket that is
often called heuristic simplification.
Heuristic simplification refers to
information-processing errors.
EMOTION
• Emotion in behavioral finance refers to the
decisions based on our current emotional
state.
• Our current mood may take our decision
making off track from rational thinking.
40
SOCIAL INFLUENCE
Here social influence is how our
decision making is influenced by
others.
BIASES IN BEHAVIORAL FINANCE- ONE SHOULD REALISE
Loss Aversion
Framing Bias
Anchoring Bias
Herding Bias
Mental Accounting
Disposition Effect
Prospect & Regret
Media Response
Overconfidence &
illusion of control
Self Attribution Bias
Hindsight Bias
Confirmation Bias
43
Situation 1: While you are walking, you find a Rs. 100 note lying on the
ground. You pocket it and feel happy about it
Situation 2: While you are walking, you find a Rs. 200 note lying on the
ground. You pocket it and subsequently, someone picks your pocket and
you lose Rs. 100.
Which situation do you think will make you happier?
The answer would be in Situation 1.
Although you gained Rs. 100 in both cases, the emotional outcomes are
different. A loss of Rs.100 gave you more pain than the gain of Rs. 200.
LOSS AVERSION-
44
We experience the same thing while investing. Consider the below scenarios
You invested Rs. 1,000 and sold at a value of Rs. 2,000. The same investment has touched a
high of say Rs. 3,000 and is now trading at say Rs. 2,000. The pain from the notional loss of Rs
1,000 will be much more compared to the overall gain on the investment.
This behaviour is also evident from the fact that most people prefer Fixed Deposits even for long-
term goals even though instruments like Mutual Funds although don’t have guaranteed returns,
have a better ability to beat inflation over the long run.
HOW TO DEAL WITH LOSS AVERSION BIAS:
• One of the easiest ways to avoid this bias is to adopt an overall portfolio perspective and not
look at investments individually. Different asset classes perform differently at a time, so if you
have a well-diversified portfolio spread across asset classes, you will have some investments
underperforming while others performing well. And hence on an overall portfolio level, you will
not see extreme losses or volatility. ( Ex. Of trons)
• Also, it is important to remain aware of loss aversion as a potential weakness in your investing
decisions.
45
46
CLASSIFICATION OF BIASES-
AVERSION TO AMBIGUITY
In decision theory and economics,
ambiguity aversion also known as
uncertainty aversion describes a
preference for known risks over
unknown risks.
47
MENTAL ACCOUNTING
An economic concept established
by economist Richard Thaler, which
contends that individuals divide
their current and future assets into
separate, non-transferable
portions. The theory purports
individuals assign different levels
of utility to each asset group,
which affects their consumption
decisions and other behaviors.
48
FRAMING
Framing is a cognitive heuristic in which people tend to
reach conclusions based on the 'framework' within which
a situation was presented. BF Framing.pptx
49
AVAILABILITY BIAS
The giving of preference by decision makers to information and
events that are more recent, that were observed personally, and
were more memorable. This is because memorable events tend to
be more magnified and are likely to cause an emotional reaction.
50
CONFIRMATION BIAS
In psychology and cognitive science,
confirmation bias (or confirmatory
bias) is a tendency to search for or
interpret information in a way that
confirms one's preconceptions,
leading to statistical errors.
51
ANCHORING
In psychology and cognitive science, confirmation bias (or confirmatory
bias) is a tendency to search for or interpret information in a way that
confirms one's preconceptions, leading to statistical errors.
52
ANCHORING
• It’s a tendency to attach or anchor our thought to a reference point even if its not logical or supported by
underlying facts.
• For instance-
• If NALCO’s share was at 75 when the Sensex stood at 33000. In the meantime post-budget , Sensex has
gone down to 30000 and so do the share price of NALCO around 60.
• So one will start thinking since post budget market and Sensex had start rallying, NALCO will also regain
and invest.
• But in the meantime there might be some fundamental change affecting NALCO as a PSU, which will keep
the price to be depressed
• That’s called anchoring bias in investment.
INNUMERACY BIAS
 Natural inability to cognitively process and evaluate probability
and ratios is called innumeracy bias.
 Difficulty in evaluation of ratios and probabilities.
54
GAMBLERS FALLACY
 When an individual erroneously believes
that the onset of a certain random event is
less likely to happen following an event or a
series of events.
 This line of thinking is incorrect because
past events do not change the probability
that certain events will occur in the future.
55
HINDSIGHT BIAS
 A psychological phenomenon in which past events seem to be more
prominent than they appeared while they were occurring.
 A tendency to think that one would have known actual events were
coming before they happened.
56
SELF ATTRIBUTION BIAS
 Self-attribution bias occurs
when people attribute
successful outcomes to their
own skill but blame
unsuccessful outcomes on
bad luck.
57
HERD BEHAVIOR
 It is the tendency for
individuals to mimic the
actions of a larger group.
Individually, most people
would not necessarily make
the same choice. This is
called herd behavior
58
REPRESENTATIVE BIAS
 A Representativeness Bias is a
cognitive bias in which an individual
categorizes a situation based on a
pattern of previous experiences or
beliefs about the scenario. It can be
useful when trying to make a quick
decision but it can also be limiting
because it leads to close-mindedness.

CAN QUANTITATIVE TRADING FACTOR IN BEHAVIOURAL
BIASES - THE CASE
• In recent history use of data science and quantitative research and modelling has failed to factor
in investor behaviour and response to events like Covid pandemic and flaring up of tension in
Middle East due to killing of Iranian General Quassem Soleimani by America in Baghdad airport.
• In case of Soleimani killing while crude surged by 4%, US and Germany Treasury yield
nosedived and US stock indexes were up as a knee jerk reaction. In the absence of any such even
factored into the models used by Quant traders their investor lost wealth.
• Similar was the fate of most of the quant fund managers when most of them had to loose wealth
in the aftermath of Covid pandemic outbreak.
67
WHAT IS QUANT TRADING
• Quantitative trading is a type of market strategy that relies on mathematical and statistical
models to identify – and often execute – opportunities. The models are driven by quantitative
analysis, which is where the strategy gets its name from. It's frequently referred to as ‘quant
trading’, or sometimes just 'quant'.
• Quantitative analysis uses research and measurement to strip complex patterns of behaviour into
numerical values. It ignores qualitative analysis, which evaluates opportunities based on subjective
factors such as management expertise or brand name.
• Quantitative trading works by using data-based models to determine the probability of a certain
outcome happening.
• Unlike other forms of trading, it relies solely on statistical methods and programming to do this.
68
• You may, for example, spot that volume spikes on Apple stock are quickly followed by significant
price moves.
• So, you build a program that looks for this pattern across Apple’s entire market history.
• If it finds that the pattern has resulted in a move upwards 95% of the time in the past, your model
will predict a 95% probability that similar patterns will occur in the future.
69
QUANTITATIVE VS ALGORITHMIC TRADING
• Algorithmic (algo) traders use automated systems that analyse chart patterns then open and close positions on their behalf. Quant traders
use statistical methods to identify, but not necessarily execute, opportunities. While they overlap each other, these are two separate
techniques that shouldn’t be confused.
• Here are a few important distinctions between the two:
• Algorithmic systems will always execute on your behalf. Some quant traders use models to identify opportunities, but then open the position
manually
• Quantitative trading uses advanced mathematical methods. Algorithmic tends to rely on more traditional technical analysis
• Algorithmic trading only uses chart analysis and data from exchanges to find new positions. Quant traders use lots of different datasets
• What data might a quant trader look at?
• The two most common data points examined by quant traders are price and volume. But any parameter that can be distilled into a
numerical value can be incorporated into a strategy. Some traders, for example, might build tools to monitor investor sentiment across social
media.
• There are lots of publicly available databases that quant traders use to inform and build their statistical models. These alternative datasets
are used to identify patterns outside of traditional financial sources, such as fundamentals.
70
QUANTITATIVE TRADING -CASE
• Let's say, for example, that you hypothesize that the NIFTY/SENSEX is more likely to move in a certain
direction at a particular point in the trading day. So you build a program that examines a large set of
market data on the NIFTY and breaks down its price moves by every second of every day. That's a
simple example of a quant trading strategy using just one data parameter: price action. Most
quantitative traders pull on several different sources at once to build far more intricate models with a
better probability of identifying profitable opportunities.
• What is a quant trader and what do they do?
• A quant trader is usually very different from a traditional investor, and they take a very different
approach to trading. Instead of relying on their expertise in the financial markets, quant traders
(quants) are mathematicians through and through. Most firms hiring quants will look for a degree in
maths, engineering or financial modelling. They’ll want experience in data mining and creating
automated systems.
• As well as building their own strategies, quant traders will often customize an existing one with a
proven success rate. But instead of using the model to identify opportunities manually, a quant trader
builds a program to do it for themselves.
71
OVERCOMING BEHAVIORAL FINANCE ISSUES
#1 Focus on the Process
• Reflexive – going with guts
• Reflective – Logical and methodical
#2 Prepare, Plan and Pre-Commit
• Behavioral finance teaches us to invest by preparing,
by planning, and by making sure we pre-commit.

PROSPECT THEORY
According to Prospect Theory, these are two stages of decision
making-
1. Editing Stage
2. Evaluation Stage
In Editing Stage, decision makers frame the choice in terms of
potential gain or loss in reference to a fixed reference point.
In Evaluation Stage, the decision maker employ on S-shaped value
curve.
To understand how the disposition effect works:-
To sell winners & ride losers emerges in prospect theory
Eg. Consider an investor who bought a stock a month ago for Rs 100, but the
stock is currently selling for Rs 80.
Let us assume that the investor expects the stock to go back to Rs 100 or fall
further to Rs 60, both outcomes being equi-probable. The possibilities are
displayed-
0.5
Rs 60
Rs 100
Rs 80
0.5
According to Prospect Theory, the investor frames his choices as choice
between two lotteries:-
A. Sell the stock now & realize what had been a “paper loss” of
Rs.20
B. Hold the stock for one more period with equal odds of
“breakeven” & losing additional Rs. 20.
The choice between those lotteries falls in the loss region as in Figure .
So, it is associated with the common portion of the S-shaped value.
B will be preferred over A

PROPOSITION 1
The decision whether to moderate or adapt to a client’s behavioral biases during the asset
allocation process depends fundamentally on the client's level of wealth.
Specifically, the wealthier the client, the more the practitioner should adopt to the client’s behavioral
biases.
The less wealthy, the more the practitioner should moderate a client’s biases.
80
PROPOSITION 2
The decision whether to moderate or adapt to a client’s behavioral biases during the asset
allocation process depends fundamentally on the type of behavioral bias the client exhibits.
Specifically, clients exhibiting cognitive biases should be moderated, while those exhibiting
emotional biases should be adapted to.

CASE A
Ms. Samaira is a single 65-year-old with a modest lifestyle and no income beyond what her investment
portfolio of $1 million generates. Her primary investment goal is to not outlive her assets; she does not,
under any circumstances, want to lose money becoz she recalls that her relative lost money in the crash of
1929, Ms. Samaira exhibits these behavioral biases:
• Loss aversion- the tendency to feel the pain of losses more than the pleasure of gain.
• Anchoring and adjustment-the tendency to believe that current market levels are “right” by unevenly weighting recent experience.
• Selective memory- the tendency to recall only events consistent with one’s understanding of the past.
83
CASE B
Mr. Jones is a single 50-year-old pharmaceutical executive earning $250,000 a year. He lives
extravagantly, occasionally spending more than his income, but has saved approximately $1.5 million.
His primary investment goal is to donate $3 million to his alma mater, but he cannot obtain life insurance.
Mr. Jones exhibits the following biases:
• Loss aversion
• Overconfidence- the tendency to over-estimate one’s investment savvy
• Lack of self-control- the tendency to spend today rather than save for tomorrow.
84
CASE C
The Roy family includes a financially well-informed couple, both aged 36, and two children aged 4 and 6.
They are financially sound, but were not invested during the bull market of the 1900s as many of their
neighbor's were. The couple’s total income $120,000, is, like the family itself, not expected to grow
significantly. They have saved $150,000 which they hope will be the financial foundation from which they
will send their children to college and retire comfortably. The Roys suffer from:
• Loss aversion
• Regret- the tendency to feel deep disappointed for having made incorrect decisions
• Availability bias- the tendency to believe that what is easily recalled is more likely
85
APART FROM THAT, FOLLOWING WERE THE ALLOCATIONS FOR EACH OF THE
THREE INVESTORS-
• Samaira:75% bonds,15% stocks, 10% cash
• Jones- 85% stocks,10% cash, 5% cash
• Roy Family- 70% stocks,25% bonds, 5% cash
86
THREE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS WHICH ARISES-
• 1. What effect do a client’s biases have on the asset allocation decision?
• 2. Should you moderate or adapt to these biases if you were in their position?
• 3.What is the best practical allocation for each investor?
87
GUIDELINES FOR OVERCOMING PSYCHOLOGICAL
BIASES
 Understand the Biases
 Focus on the Big Picture
 Rely on Words and Numbers, not Sights and Sounds
 Follow a Set of Quantitative Investment Criteria
 Diversify
 Take Care of the Downside
 Control Your Investment Environment
 Strive to Earn Market Returns
 Track Your Feelings
 Review Your Biases Periodically
 Rebalance
CAN THERE BE AN END TO BEHAVIOURIAL BIASES?
89
While we cannot cure the behavioral biases we’re born with, we can certainly try to mitigate their effects.
Whether you’re a personal investor, an investment manager, a financial planner, or a broker, you can
benefit from understanding the driving forces behind investment decisions.
In “The End of Behavioral Finance,” we believe that one day behavioral finance will no longer be as
controversial as it once was;
That one day, its ideas will become part of the mainstream.
Eventually, individuals might wonder, “what kind of other finance is there?”

  • 8. SYSTEM-1 • Here are some examples of the automatic activities attributable to System 1, in rough order of complexity.  Detect that one object is nearer than another.  Discern friendliness in a voice.  Answer 2+1=?  Drive a bicycle on an empty road.  Comprehend simple sentences. • All these mental events occur automatically and require practically no effort. 8
  • 9. SYSTEM-2 • While the activities of System 1 normally run on an automatic pilot and are involuntary, the operations of System 2 require attention and voluntary effort. Here are some examples of the operations of system 2.  Identify the no. of blinking arrows in the circus.  Discern the voice of a friend in a crowded and noisy room.  Walk at a speed faster than is natural for you.  Control your behaviour in a social situation, even if you are in pain.  Count the number of times the letter “a” occurs in a paragraph.  Compare two Companies analysis report for overall value.  Calculate the value of product of 11113x 737990.  Pick holes in a complex argument. 9

  • 14. AN INVESTOR’S CHIEF PROBLEM AND WORST ENEMY IS THE INVESTOR HIMSELF
  • 15. BEHAVIORAL FINANCE, INTRODUCTION “The investor’s chief problem, and even his worst enemy, is likely to be himself”- Benjamin Graham “There are three factors that influence the market: Fear, Greed, and Greed.”- Market folklore • Sooner or later, you are going to make an investment decision that winds up costing you a lot of money. • Why is this going to happen? • You made a sound decision, but you are “unlucky”. • You made a bad decision-one that could have been avoided. • The beginning of investment wisdom: • Learn to recognize circumstances leading to poor decisions • Then, you will reduce the damage from investment blunder 15
  • 16. WHAT IS BEHAVIORAL FINANCE? It is the study of the influence of psychology on the behavior of investors or financial analysts. It also includes the subsequent effects on the markets. 16 It focuses on the fact that investors are not always rational, have limits to their self-control, and are influenced by their own biases.
  • 17. WHAT IS BEHAVIORAL FINANCE? A field of finance that proposes psychology- based theories to explain stock market anomalies. Within behavioral finance, it is assumed that the information structure and the characteristics of market participants systematically influence individuals' investment decisions as well as market outcomes. 17
  • 18. WHAT IS IT?  Study that seeks to combine psychology, sociology and traditional finance.  Helps explain why people make irrational financial decision. 18 WHAT IS IT IMPORTANT?  It is necessary because technical “analysis assume” that people act rationally. Psychology Behavioral finance Sociology Finance
  • 19. TRADITIONAL FINANCIAL THEORY Traditional finance includes: • Both the market and investors are perfectly rational • Investors truly care about utilitarian characteristics • Investors have perfect self-control • They are not confused by cognitive errors or information processing errors
  • 20. EMH
  • 21. BEHAVIORAL FINANCE THEORY Traits of behavioral finance are: • Investors are treated as “normal” not “rational” • They actually have limits to their self-control • Investors are influenced by their own biases • Investors make cognitive errors that can lead to wrong decisions
  • 22. CONVENTIONAL VS BEHAVIORAL Traditional Financial Theory In order to better understand behavioral finance, let’s first look at traditional financial theory. Traditional finance includes the following beliefs: • Both the market and investor are perfectly rational • Investors truly care about utilitarian characteristics • Investors have perfect self-control • They are not confused by cognitive errors or information processing errors Behavioral Finance Theory Traits of behavioral finance are: • Investors are treated as “normal” not “rational” • They actually have limits to their self-control • Investors are influenced by their own biases • Investors make cognitive errors that can lead to wrong decisions 22
  • 23. WHY BEHAVIORAL FINANCE? • Conventional or modern finance is based on rational and logical theories, such as the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) and the efficient market hypothesis (EMH). • These theories assume that people, for the most part, behave rationally and predictably. • One of the most rudimentary assumptions that conventional economics and finance makes is that people are rational “wealth maximizers” who seek to increase their own well-being. • Behavioral finance seeks to explain our actions, whereas modern finance seeks to explain the actions of the “economic man” 23
  • 24. BEHAVIORAL FINANCE – MICRO & MACRO 24 Micro-behavioral finance Macro-behavioral finance • Analyzes behavioral biases which distinguish individual investors from totally rational economic beings – homo economicus – from neoclassical economics • Questions totally rational decision-making • States that behavioral biases have a profound impact on decision-making and can drive suboptimal decision- making and errors that directly contradict with traditional finance • Analyzes market anomalies that distinguish financial markets from efficient markets assumed by traditional finance • At the same time questions this informational efficiency of markets • States that financial markets are impacted by behavioral influences (market anomalies, bubbles, excess volatility, limited arbitrage)

  • 27. BEHAVIORAL FINANCE MAY ALSO BE DEFINED BY THE MODIFICATIONS IT HAS MADE TO A STANDARD FINANCE FRAMEWORK Here is a catch-all description given by Statman (2014): Behavioral finance substitutes normal people for the rational people in standard finance. It substitutes behavioral portfolio theory for mean-variance portfolio theory, and behavioral asset pricing models for the CAPM and other models where expected returns are determined only by risk. Behavioral finance expands the domain of finance beyond portfolios, asset pricing, and market efficiency. It explores the behavior of investors and managers in direct and indirect ways, whether by examining brains in fMRIs or examining wants, errors, preferences, and behavior in questionnaires, experiments, and the field. Behavioral finance explores saving and spending behavior and it explores financial choices affected by culture, fairness, social responsibility, and other expressive and emotional wants. 27

  • 30. EVOLUTION OF BEHAVIORAL FINANCE The case (Reading) ARTICLE ON BF- CONCEPT.pdf Standard finance theory is accepted world-wide from market level perspective. But in1960s and 1970s, new wave in field of finance has been started by psychologist, study of heuristics found many biases and limit to cognitive resources, through examining economic decisions. It was started by study of Slovic (1969,1972) studied stock brokers and investors. Slovic (1972) states the money Game: “You are—face it—a bunch of emotions, prejudices, and twitches, and this is all very well as long as you know it. Successful speculators do not necessarily have a complete portrait of themselves, warts and all, in their own mind, but they do have the ability to stop abruptly when their intuition and what is happening out there are suddenly out of kilter. If you don’t know who you are, this is an expensive place to find out.” Recognition of the contribution that behavioural analysis is now significant in financial economics was reflected in 2002 with Awards of the Nobel Prize in economics to professor of psychology, Daniel Kahneman, where he detailed the heuristics and biases that occur when making decisions under uncertainty.
  • 31. • Fast and successful development of behavioral finance (economics) from 1970s • Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tverky (academic psychologists) – The most famous paper Prospect Theory: An Analysis of Decision under Risk – Econometrica, 1979 • Prospect theory is cornerstone of behavioral finance, behavioral economics overall – Descriptive alternative to mainstream expected utility theory • Framing – Form versus substance, risk-seeking versus risk-aversion depending on losses or gains • In 2002, Kahneman received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, despite being a research psychologist, for his work in prospect theory, decision making and judgment under risk, i.e. in real world conditions. (Amos Tversky prem. died in 1996) PROSPECT THEORY – CORNERSTONE OF BEHAVIORAL FINANCE (KAHNEMAN, TVERSKY – 1979) 3 1 Daniel Kahneman (1934) Amos Tversky (1937-1996)
  • 33. THE 3 IDEAS MAKE HIM GOT THE NOBEL PRIZE IN 2017 33 RICHARD THALER
  • 34. THE BOOK- BY THALER • Those 3 ideas developed by Richard Thaler, that change the way we think and behave: • 1. Bounded rationality- mental accounting • 2. lack of self-control – dilemma/mental illusion • 3. nudges- push or a positive reinforcement 34
  • 35. 35
  • 36. Behavioral finance views investors as “normal” but being subject to decision-making biases and errors. We can break down the decision making biases and errors into four buckets. 37 DECISION-MAKING ERRORS AND BIASES
  • 37. SELF DECEPTION • It limits to the way we learn. • We mistakenly think we know more than we actually do, and we tend to miss information that we need to make an informed decision. 38
  • 38. HEURISTIC SIMPLIFICATION We can also scope out a bucket that is often called heuristic simplification. Heuristic simplification refers to information-processing errors.
  • 39. EMOTION • Emotion in behavioral finance refers to the decisions based on our current emotional state. • Our current mood may take our decision making off track from rational thinking. 40
  • 40. SOCIAL INFLUENCE Here social influence is how our decision making is influenced by others.
  • 41. BIASES IN BEHAVIORAL FINANCE- ONE SHOULD REALISE Loss Aversion Framing Bias Anchoring Bias Herding Bias Mental Accounting Disposition Effect Prospect & Regret Media Response Overconfidence & illusion of control Self Attribution Bias Hindsight Bias Confirmation Bias

You pocket it and feel happy about it Situation 2: While you are walking, you find a Rs. 200 note lying on the ground. You pocket it and subsequently, someone picks your pocket and you lose Rs. 100. Which situation do you think will make you happier? The answer would be in Situation 1. Although you gained Rs. 100 in both cases, the emotional outcomes are different. A loss of Rs.100 gave you more pain than the gain of Rs. 200. LOSS AVERSION-
  • 43. 44 We experience the same thing while investing. Consider the below scenarios You invested Rs. 1,000 and sold at a value of Rs. 2,000. The same investment has touched a high of say Rs. 3,000 and is now trading at say Rs. 2,000. The pain from the notional loss of Rs 1,000 will be much more compared to the overall gain on the investment. This behaviour is also evident from the fact that most people prefer Fixed Deposits even for long- term goals even though instruments like Mutual Funds although don’t have guaranteed returns, have a better ability to beat inflation over the long run.
  • 44. HOW TO DEAL WITH LOSS AVERSION BIAS: • One of the easiest ways to avoid this bias is to adopt an overall portfolio perspective and not look at investments individually. Different asset classes perform differently at a time, so if you have a well-diversified portfolio spread across asset classes, you will have some investments underperforming while others performing well. And hence on an overall portfolio level, you will not see extreme losses or volatility. ( Ex. Of trons) • Also, it is important to remain aware of loss aversion as a potential weakness in your investing decisions. 45

  • 47. MENTAL ACCOUNTING An economic concept established by economist Richard Thaler, which contends that individuals divide their current and future assets into separate, non-transferable portions. The theory purports individuals assign different levels of utility to each asset group, which affects their consumption decisions and other behaviors. 48

  • 52. ANCHORING • It’s a tendency to attach or anchor our thought to a reference point even if its not logical or supported by underlying facts. • For instance- • If NALCO’s share was at 75 when the Sensex stood at 33000. In the meantime post-budget , Sensex has gone down to 30000 and so do the share price of NALCO around 60. • So one will start thinking since post budget market and Sensex had start rallying, NALCO will also regain and invest. • But in the meantime there might be some fundamental change affecting NALCO as a PSU, which will keep the price to be depressed • That’s called anchoring bias in investment.

  • 66. CAN QUANTITATIVE TRADING FACTOR IN BEHAVIOURAL BIASES - THE CASE • In recent history use of data science and quantitative research and modelling has failed to factor in investor behaviour and response to events like Covid pandemic and flaring up of tension in Middle East due to killing of Iranian General Quassem Soleimani by America in Baghdad airport. • In case of Soleimani killing while crude surged by 4%, US and Germany Treasury yield nosedived and US stock indexes were up as a knee jerk reaction. In the absence of any such even factored into the models used by Quant traders their investor lost wealth. • Similar was the fate of most of the quant fund managers when most of them had to loose wealth in the aftermath of Covid pandemic outbreak. 67
  • 67. WHAT IS QUANT TRADING • Quantitative trading is a type of market strategy that relies on mathematical and statistical models to identify – and often execute – opportunities. The models are driven by quantitative analysis, which is where the strategy gets its name from. It's frequently referred to as ‘quant trading’, or sometimes just 'quant'. • Quantitative analysis uses research and measurement to strip complex patterns of behaviour into numerical values. It ignores qualitative analysis, which evaluates opportunities based on subjective factors such as management expertise or brand name. • Quantitative trading works by using data-based models to determine the probability of a certain outcome happening. • Unlike other forms of trading, it relies solely on statistical methods and programming to do this. 68
  • 68. • You may, for example, spot that volume spikes on Apple stock are quickly followed by significant price moves. • So, you build a program that looks for this pattern across Apple’s entire market history. • If it finds that the pattern has resulted in a move upwards 95% of the time in the past, your model will predict a 95% probability that similar patterns will occur in the future. 69
  • 69. QUANTITATIVE VS ALGORITHMIC TRADING • Algorithmic (algo) traders use automated systems that analyse chart patterns then open and close positions on their behalf. Quant traders use statistical methods to identify, but not necessarily execute, opportunities. While they overlap each other, these are two separate techniques that shouldn’t be confused. • Here are a few important distinctions between the two: • Algorithmic systems will always execute on your behalf. Some quant traders use models to identify opportunities, but then open the position manually • Quantitative trading uses advanced mathematical methods. Algorithmic tends to rely on more traditional technical analysis • Algorithmic trading only uses chart analysis and data from exchanges to find new positions. Quant traders use lots of different datasets • What data might a quant trader look at? • The two most common data points examined by quant traders are price and volume. But any parameter that can be distilled into a numerical value can be incorporated into a strategy. Some traders, for example, might build tools to monitor investor sentiment across social media. • There are lots of publicly available databases that quant traders use to inform and build their statistical models. These alternative datasets are used to identify patterns outside of traditional financial sources, such as fundamentals. 70
  • 70. QUANTITATIVE TRADING -CASE • Let's say, for example, that you hypothesize that the NIFTY/SENSEX is more likely to move in a certain direction at a particular point in the trading day. So you build a program that examines a large set of market data on the NIFTY and breaks down its price moves by every second of every day. That's a simple example of a quant trading strategy using just one data parameter: price action. Most quantitative traders pull on several different sources at once to build far more intricate models with a better probability of identifying profitable opportunities. • What is a quant trader and what do they do? • A quant trader is usually very different from a traditional investor, and they take a very different approach to trading. Instead of relying on their expertise in the financial markets, quant traders (quants) are mathematicians through and through. Most firms hiring quants will look for a degree in maths, engineering or financial modelling. They’ll want experience in data mining and creating automated systems. • As well as building their own strategies, quant traders will often customize an existing one with a proven success rate. But instead of using the model to identify opportunities manually, a quant trader builds a program to do it for themselves. 71

  • 73. PROSPECT THEORY According to Prospect Theory, these are two stages of decision making- 1. Editing Stage 2. Evaluation Stage In Editing Stage, decision makers frame the choice in terms of potential gain or loss in reference to a fixed reference point. In Evaluation Stage, the decision maker employ on S-shaped value curve.
  • 74. To understand how the disposition effect works:- To sell winners & ride losers emerges in prospect theory Eg. Consider an investor who bought a stock a month ago for Rs 100, but the stock is currently selling for Rs 80. Let us assume that the investor expects the stock to go back to Rs 100 or fall further to Rs 60, both outcomes being equi-probable. The possibilities are displayed- 0.5 Rs 60 Rs 100 Rs 80 0.5
  • 75. According to Prospect Theory, the investor frames his choices as choice between two lotteries:- A. Sell the stock now & realize what had been a “paper loss” of Rs.20 B. Hold the stock for one more period with equal odds of “breakeven” & losing additional Rs. 20. The choice between those lotteries falls in the loss region as in Figure . So, it is associated with the common portion of the S-shaped value.

  • 82. CASE A Ms. Samaira is a single 65-year-old with a modest lifestyle and no income beyond what her investment portfolio of $1 million generates. Her primary investment goal is to not outlive her assets; she does not, under any circumstances, want to lose money becoz she recalls that her relative lost money in the crash of 1929, Ms. Samaira exhibits these behavioral biases: • Loss aversion- the tendency to feel the pain of losses more than the pleasure of gain. • Anchoring and adjustment-the tendency to believe that current market levels are “right” by unevenly weighting recent experience. • Selective memory- the tendency to recall only events consistent with one’s understanding of the past. 83
  • 83. CASE B Mr. Jones is a single 50-year-old pharmaceutical executive earning $250,000 a year. He lives extravagantly, occasionally spending more than his income, but has saved approximately $1.5 million. His primary investment goal is to donate $3 million to his alma mater, but he cannot obtain life insurance. Mr. Jones exhibits the following biases: • Loss aversion • Overconfidence- the tendency to over-estimate one’s investment savvy • Lack of self-control- the tendency to spend today rather than save for tomorrow. 84
  • 84. CASE C The Roy family includes a financially well-informed couple, both aged 36, and two children aged 4 and 6. They are financially sound, but were not invested during the bull market of the 1900s as many of their neighbor's were. The couple’s total income $120,000, is, like the family itself, not expected to grow significantly. They have saved $150,000 which they hope will be the financial foundation from which they will send their children to college and retire comfortably. The Roys suffer from: • Loss aversion • Regret- the tendency to feel deep disappointed for having made incorrect decisions • Availability bias- the tendency to believe that what is easily recalled is more likely 85

Whether you’re a personal investor, an investment manager, a financial planner, or a broker, you can benefit from understanding the driving forces behind investment decisions. In “The End of Behavioral Finance,” we believe that one day behavioral finance will no longer be as controversial as it once was; That one day, its ideas will become part of the mainstream.
