Finance is typically seen as an exact science focused on cold and hard numbers. What is forgotten, though, is that financial decisions in companies and on the stock exchange are, in the end, always made by human beings. As people are not purely cold and hard calculators, there are both psychological and sociological effects affecting our decisions. The minor behavioural finance looks at the effect that uncertainty has on the decisions we make. Subsequently, it dives into the corporate world and examines how these effects influence decisions by managers in valuing corporations and investors buying and selling on the stock market. By combining academic work with guest lectures from practitioners, we might be able to shed some light on the complex financial jungle and the influence it has on our every day life!
