Event Details

AAII Silicon Valley Chapter Presents: "Increasing Equity Returns While Decreasing Draw-Downs Using Behavioral Finance"


Successful equity investing is challenging enough without emotions & behavioral errors getting in our way. This presentation will review the behavioral mistakes ‘conventional’ investors make and show you how to avoid those mistakes. We will discuss the benefits of a systematic approach to equity investing and how your portfolio can prosper in both bull & bear markets.



Attend This Meeting to Learn:

  • How typical human behavior impedes upon equity investment returns

  • How removing emotions and “noise” from the investment process results in making better investment decisions

  • How to decrease portfolio draw-downs

Reasons to Attend This Meeting:

  • Become more comfortable with your equity investment decision making

  • Improve your risk management techniques

  • Benefit by using facts, not ‘feelings’ when investing
