This is the second of a multi-part series of tales that deal with how to view investing and how to look at risk. The key is to make sure that you understand that investments have personalities and that once you can understand their behavior you can determine what type of portfolio to construct. The portfolio you construct should be a reflection of who you are and your objectives.
I just finished reading a new book by Prof. Meir Statman. The title is What Investors Really Want. Prof. Statman is a top Behavioral Finance Researchers and has published extensively on the subject of what makes people invest the way they do.
I will have the opportunity to interview him in a few weeks and you will be able to hear the audio soon after. I have formulated a number of questions already that I want to ask and the reason for this post is to get feedback from readers.
Please let me know what questions or topics as they relate to investment behavior you would ask. I will make sure to include them.
Thanks for your interest.
