Return of the Active Manager: How to apply behavioral finance to renew and improve investment management (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


Emotional behavior and biases run throughout financial markets. This is the diagnosis of behavioral fianance.

But it is not enough to know that investors make biased decisions. What do we do about it? How do we move beyond diagnosis, to prescription?

In this groundbreaking new book, investing and behavioural finance experts Thomas Howard and Jason A. Voss plug this void and show the new way ahead for investment managers and advisors. Return of the Active Manager provides a set of tools for investment professionals to overcome and take advantage of behavioral biases.

Across seven compelling chapters, Return of the Active Manager details actionable advice on topics such as behaviourally-enhanced fundamental analysis, active equity fund evaluation and selection, harnessing big data, and investment firm structure. You learn how to exploit behavioural price distortions, how to recognise and avoid behavioural biases (in both yourself and clients), how to extract behavioral insights from the executives of prospective investments, and how manager behaviour can be used to predict future fund performance.

An indispensable tool for research analysts, portfolio managers, private wealth advisors and manager search consultants, Return of the Active Manager rationalises the financial markets and prescribes actionable strategies that build on the lessons of behavioural finance.
