The 2020 behavioral finance evolution

Now Available On Demand

Join this expert panel to hear key findings and insights from the new BeFi Barometer 2020 survey—a joint research effort of Charles Schwab Investment Management, the Investments & Wealth Institute and Cerulli Associates. Fielded in May and June 2020—after an unprecedented period of market turbulence and societal turmoil—this year’s survey gives us a unique backdrop in which to consider the effects of behavioral finance on advisors and their clients. Panelists will discuss:

  • Perspective on the results of the survey, conducted in the midst of COVID-19
  • How advisors and their clients responded amid market volatility
  • Ideas, insights and easy-to-implement techniques to help advisors manage client expectations and biases during these uncertain times

CFP, CIMA®, CPWA®, CIMC®, RMA®, and AEP® CE Credits have been applied for and are pending approval.
