Workshop Announcement
University of St. Gallen - Workshop in Quantitative Behavioural Finance

Friday December 14, University of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland

OVERVIEW: Behavioural finance has emerged has a new research field in finance applying psychology to financial decision making and financial markets. Starting from experimental findings from the psychology literature, behavioural finance has successfully addressed several observed anomalies concerning investors' behavior and asset prices.

However, behavioural finance still lacks a unified and rigorous formal framework able to combine psychological findings with the rich theoretical foundation of neoclassical finance. The development of a rigorous formal framework for behavioural finance is the main concern of quantitative behavioural finance.

Eight prominent speakers will discuss current developments in quantitative behavioural finance and will provide a view on future challenges.
