Noise: Funds and Frontier Psychiatry (with Joe Wiggins)

The New Fund Order

11-07-2021 • 25 mins

Welcome to the New Fund Order. An Orwellian journey into the Darkside, the Frontier and the Fringe of Finance.

Bombarding your airwaves, this episode explores the implications of behavioural finance and Daniel Kahneman's latest book 'Noise'. How is 24/7 media impacting investing decisions? We go overwatch with our guide, and experienced asset allocator and behavioural observer, Joe Wiggins (ex ASI).

Together we examine 'noise' versus investor and fund selector biases and; variability and inconsistency, which is even more difficult to manage compared to consistent biases, how base rates and other tools can be used to cut through that noise and ultimately explore some of the behavioural trappings common to wealth management and fund research.
