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

Hosts: Prof. Morris Altman

The School is pleased to announce our next Ronald Coase Lecture, which will be delivered by Professor Werner De Bondt (DePaul University, Chicago, US). The topic of Professor De Bondt's lecture will be on investments, with an emphasis on both the strengths and weaknesses of financial decision-making. This lecture will be open to all academics, students and the general public.

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).
