Episode 1: Meir Statman

We open with a bang in our first episode, a wide-ranging discussion with Professor Meir Statman. Meir is one of the true originals of behavioral finance—really a legend in the field. This discussion though, broadens across Meir’s career, with particular emphasis on his popular book, “Finance for Normal People”—an accessible yet jam packed work covering a career’s worth of findings in behavioral finance and economics.

For my part, the value of Meir’s work has always been in the humanity he brings to finance, you can hear it in his voice alone—and it’s part of what made this interview such a joy to do. Ultimately, the exploration of your own self and the psychology of others, is well worth the time in the quest to be a better person and better investor.

Coronavirus and Market Update Webinar

This podcast features an audio excerpt from a Market Update Webinar provided exclusively for Fisher Investments clients. In this podcast, Fisher Investments’ Senior Vice President of Research and Investment Policy Committee Member, Michael Hanson discusses recent market volatility and our current outlook.

Since hitting all-time highs in mid-February, markets entered one of the swiftest downturns in history, largely based on fears over the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all the fear, we believe what’s most important for investors is to stay disciplined and avoid short-sighted investing mistakes.

While many believe recession is a foregone conclusion, we aren’t so sure. Institutional closures in response to the pandemic increase the likelihood of recession, but the duration of these closures matters a lot too. Michael discusses three potential scenarios regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and what each might mean for markets.
