Overcoming emotions to avoid behavioral investing

Watch the video

The long and short of it is, our emotions and behaviors affect the decisions we make every day. But, when it comes to decisions around when and what to invest in—acting on a whim or a feeling can often lead to trouble.

In this short video CWA Partner Judson Crawford looks at the discrepancy between average investor vs. average market return.  CWA recommends that investors utilize money managers to manage their investment portfolio. Investors can see this as an unnecessary cost, but the truth is, the average investor consistently earns below-average returns.

It can be possible overcome some behavioral inconsistencies—our advisors suggest investors take these three steps:

1. Understand your risk level
2. Have a diverse portfolio
3. Trust your managers
