Why do investors, even financial professionals, often make sub-optimal decisions? And what can we do about it?
A large part of the reason lies in human psychology. I conduct fundamental and also practically relevant research in investor psychology ("behavioral finance") and use my insights to consult banks and insurance companies improving their products and services. Primarily, I develop and implement innovative methods to measure and assess the risk preferences of investors (“risk profiling”), taking into account the ongoing digitalization in the financial industry.
