Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Oct 26, 2016

My guest for this episode of Informed Choice Radio is Dr Daniel Crosby.

Educated at Brigham Young and Emory Universities, Dr Daniel Crosby is a psychologist, behavioural finance expert and asset manager who applies his study of market psychology to everything from financial product design to security selection.

He is founder of Nocturne Capital and co-author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Personal Benchmark: Integrating Behavioral Finance and Investment Management.

Daniel is at the forefront of behavioralising finance. His ideas have appeared in the Huffington Post and Risk Management Magazine, as well as his monthly columns for and Investment News.

Daniel was named one of the ’12 Thinkers to Watch’ by, a ‘Financial Blogger You Should Be Reading’ by AARP and in the ‘Top 40 Under 40’ by Investment News.

His new book is The Laws of Wealth: Psychology and the secret to investing success where he offers an accessible and applied take on a discipline that has long tended toward theory at the expense of the practical.

In The Laws of Wealth, readers are treated to real, actionable guidance as the promise of behavioural finance is realised and practical applications for everyday investors are delivered.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Daniel about the basics of behavioural finance, how the messiness of lived experience can be integrated as an investor, whether all investors are as bad as each other when it comes to negative behavioural traits, and much more.

Welcome to The Laws of Wealth with Dr Daniel Crosby, in episode 127 of Informed Choice Radio.

Some questions I ask

-Could you explain what is behavioural finance, how does it work, what are the principles behind it?

-How does behavioural finance work on a practical basis when investing money?

-Are all clients as bad as each other when it comes to behavioural traits?

-Why do people tend to fear high-profile, low-probability events, like getting bitten by a snake?

-How does consumer behaviour drive investment markets?

-What can we expect to see from the field of behavioural finance in the future?
