Program Description:
Most investment training concerns either accounting, financial statement analysis or capital market theory. But an investor's relative performance will also be determined to a significant extent by a number of other things: what I call the human side of investing. How is theory wrong? Where do the rules fall down? Perhaps markets would be smooth-functioning if the participants were machines, or the rational, objective and unemotional actors theory assumes them to be. But they're not, and superior performance often goes to those who best understand the divergence between theory and real-world practice.
