Behavioral Economics has been one of the hottest topics over the past year. Investment firms have used theories based on behavioral economics to explain anomalies in the market, focused on decisions related to the stock market, money management and asset valuation. Today, there is even a “Behavioral Economics” ETF!

Equity compensation professionals are becoming more knowledgeable about the fundamentals of behavioral finance and how to incorporate them into remuneration design. In this way, they seek to gain a better understanding of the biases that may cause participants to make decisions that are not always in their best interests.

This presentation provides insight into the concepts and principals that underlie behavioral economics. Armed with these insights, equity compensation programs can be designed for greater effectiveness.
