They are rules of thumb that help you make sense of the world and reach decisions with relative speed. Unfortunately, these biases sometimes trip us up, leading to poor decisions and bad judgments. A neuroscientist and a hedge fund manager will look behind the curtain of your conscious mind and take a deep dive into cognitive biases that impact your financial success. Together they will identify strategies to slow you down so you avoid unnecessary risk and make better decisions.  Read more about this topic in Dr. Daniel Krawczyk & George Baxter, JD, CFA latest book “Understanding Behavioral Bia$: A Guide to Financial Decision Making”.
