About this Unit
Cognitive biases and emotional influences have the potential to influence the decision-making of advisors, managers and investors. This unit provides students with the skills to advise clients such that their investment decisions are soundly based. Various biases and influences are introduced to students to demonstrate how they undermine rational investment decision-making. Students are then taught how to apply methods that advisers can use to overcome and correct these biases. Ensuring clients are fully educated about investment decisions is integral to the investment process, and necessary to ensure advisers meet the best interest duty of their profession. This unit is available as a stand-alone bridging unit which is accredited by the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) having met the FASEA curriculum and standards requirements.
