Presenter Professor Werner De Bondt (DePaul University, Chicago, US)

Hosts: Dr. Stavros Kourtzidis and Dr. Egor Kiselev

Professor De Bondt studies the rationality and irrationality of investors, markets, and organizations. He has investigated key research questions such as the intuitive tendency of naïve investors to extrapolate past trends in stock prices and corporate earnings, market overreaction, bubbles, the excessive self-confidence of traders, and their herding instinct. 

Key facts:

  • One of the founders of the field of behavioural finance.
  • 3,357 citations of his paper in the Journal of Finance “Does the Stock Market Overreact?”. Co-author – Nobel Prize winner Richard Thaler.
  • Frequent speaker to academics and investment professionals around the world.
  • Numerous academic articles (among others, in the Journal of Finance, the Financial Analysts Journal, the European Economic Review, and the American Economic Review).

This is a technical talk for early-career researchers, PhD students, and graduate students.
