Course 303: Investor Behaviour Biases

Date: 16-11-2018

Time: 09:30

Venue: Malta Stock Exchange

Category: Education

Overview:
The study of finance has so far used the paradigm of  rational agents and market efficiency. In the recent past,  a new area in finance, behavioural finance, has  emerged  to challenge the notion of rationality. Based on new  insights from psychology and armed with many  empirical and experimental investigations, this new  area is showing that traditional finance is insufficient in  explaining investors’ behaviour. The aim of this course is  to review the evidence and insights from  psychology to  help us understand better investors’ behaviour: investors’  trading patterns, impacts arising from these patterns on  asset prices (anomalies) and the issue of arbitrage in  this paradigm.

Securities admitted to the Prospects MTF are issued by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Investment in smaller companies can involve greater risk than is generally associated with investment in larger more established companies and can result in significant capital losses. Securities issued by SMEs tend to be illiquid and investors should therefore seek appropriate advice before making any investment.

Titoli ammessi fuq Prospects MTF jinħarġu minn intrapriżi żgħar u ta’ daqs medju (SMEs). L-investiment f'kumpaniji żgħar jista’ jinvolvi riskju akbar milli huwa ġeneralment assoċjat ma' investiment f'kumpaniji akbar u aktar stabbiliti u jista’ jirriżulta f'telf sinifikanti ta' kapital. It-titoli maħruġa mill-SMEs għandhom it-tendenza li mhumiex likwidi u l-investituri għandhom għalhekk ifittxu parir xieraq qabel ma jagħmlu xi investiment.
