What Terrance Odean Talks About:
Financial decisions are challenging at the best of times but during economic downturns they can mean the difference between a portfolio reduction and a total wipe out. Understanding how your clients evaluate advice and make these decisions is a crucial part of any Advisors role.
Terry Odean examines how different people see loss and evaluate risk. He identifies key signs that Advisors should watch for when discussing difficult strategies with clients, especially clients who are re-evaluating their investments. For many people making these decisions really comes down to an awareness of past framing and an understanding of positive framing.
Terry will show you how past investors have made mistakes by allowing their psychological bias to over-rule market analysis. He will identify the steps necessary to build a stable psychological foundation with each client, a foundation that allows the Advisor to advise in terms that clients can identify with.
