Behavioural Finance and Money Culture

This course unfolds the complex interplay between behavioural finance, ESG factors, and their significant role in modern financial decision-making. Initially, it lays the groundwork with an introduction to behavioural finance, elucidating how psychological aspects and cognitive biases like overconfidence and loss aversion profoundly influence financial decisions.

Subsequently, it ventures into the critical role of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors in shaping investment strategies, underscoring the importance of sustainable investing for both societal benefit and investor interest. The narrative then transitions to the pivotal theme of financial inclusion, highlighting its necessity for enhancing economic resilience and societal well-being.

Addressing emotional barriers, the course presents methodologies to mitigate their impact, advocating for mindfulness and rational decision-making in finance. It also spotlights innovative financial services aimed at propelling ESG goals and fostering financial inclusion, featuring digital banking solutions and investment platforms tailored for women and marginalised communities.

Lastly, the course stresses the indispensability of ongoing financial education and literacy in navigating the rapidly evolving financial markets, ensuring individuals are well-equipped for informed decision-making. This holistic approach not only enriches participants' understanding of behavioural finance and ESG but also empowers them to make ethical, informed financial choices in an ever-changing world.
