The psychology of investment markets

Human psychology plays a huge role in investment markets, helping explain why asset prices go through irrational and periodic booms and busts.

The madness of crowds, myopic loss aversion, pressure for conformity are concepts we should all be mindful of when investing.  

In the latest episode of Oliver’s Insights, part of AMP’s Simplifying Investing podcast series, our Chief Economist, Dr. Shane Oliver, takes a deeper look into how emotion influences investment decisions and market performance.

This episode can be found on your favourite streaming platform, including SpotifyGoogle and Apple Podcasts.
