The Psychology and Biology of Investing
Behavioral finance explains actual behavior through psychological, cognitive, and emotional factors that often lead a person to biased, non-rational, financial decisions. What is the source of these behavioral biases? One answer is biology—sleep, health, hormones, genetics, emotions, cognitive decline, and more.

Man vs. Machine: Are Humans Obsolete?
Over time the financial industry has transitioned from more qualitative to more quantitative forms of analysis. Many question whether quantitative methods will make traditional investment research obsolete, as investors search for the ever elusive perfect black box to curtail their emotions. I feel the pendulum will swing back to the qualitative, where investors are not replaced by computers, but instead investors will embrace quantitative methods and also focus on areas of research where humans have the advantage. Man vs. Machine becomes Man + Machine.
