San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
In an effort to engage more individual investors and financial practitioners on the topic of Behavioral Finance, and to showcase the depth and scope of work being done in this field by Bay area universities and industry professionals, GGU will host a full-day symposium at its downtown San Francisco campus on Nov. 9, 2013. Faculty from GGU, UC Berkeley, USF and Goucher College will speak along with senior investment professionals from local asset management firms, such as Russell Fuller, Chairman of Fuller & Thaler Asset Management in San Mateo. Other key speakers include authors Ori Brafman ("Sway"), Dr. Richard Peterson ("Inside the Investor’s Brain"), and Nardin Baker, Chief Investment Strategist at Guggenheim Partners. Symposium Coordinator Richard Lehman, Instructor of Behavioral Finance at UC Berkeley Extension, says, “This is an exciting event and hopefully just the beginning of an expanded public forum on this important new field. There is considerable expertise on the subject within the Bay area academic and professional communities, and thanks to GGU, we now have the opportunity to showcase it”.
Financial professionals, individual investors and students are encouraged to attend. The full-day event costs $225, with discounts to $160 for members of many investment and professional organizations. Full-time students may register at no cost.
