The module provides an in-depth coverage of Behavioural Finance, which replaces the "rationality" assumption with behavioural biases that have been documented by psychologists. This approach will be applied to explain puzzles in asset pricing and corporate finance, and to underpin practical applications.
The module provides an introduction to Behavioural Finance as an alternative approach to explaining investors' decisions and behaviour, and financial market outcomes, based on psychological theory and evidence. This includes consideration of the Efficient Markets Hypothesis, market inefficiency and specific empirical anomalies; as well as Expected Utility Theory and Allais’ and Rabin’s critiques. Alternative perspectives of financial decision making, such as Prospect Theory, are developed, based on psychological research and evidence, and are used to underpin the concept of investor sentiment. Behavioural explanations for prominent asset pricing anomalies as explored, as well as frictions that promote market inefficiency, such as arbitrage constraints. The module also briefly covers applications of Behavioural theories to Corporate Finance decisions.
