The webinar will discuss how even the best investment strategy, based on rigorous planning and research, can be trumped by unconscious impulses and mood swings.

Geddes, CIO of Aperio Group, an asset manager with over $8 billion under management will explain how many of us have biases that drive us to act in ways that are ultimately harmful to our wealth. Prior to joining Aperio Group, Patrick was the CFO of Morningstar, Inc.

The free webinar offers insights from the new field of behavioral finance research, which demonstrates that people often display overconfidence in their abilities, gauging time inaccurately and not wanting to acknowledge mistakes. Plus, the webinar will point out how even financial professionals have personal biases which can trap them into making unconscious choices that may help their own wealth over that of their clients'.

Geddes, will provide practical advice on how to make good investment decisions and avoid the worst dangers that are lurking in your brain or those of your financial advisors.
