A Short Seminar in UCSI

I was honored to be able to speak in UCSI’s Professional Pathway Day on last Saturday, 23th of March, of which a total of 107 students attended it. In the seminar, I revealed to the students a few psychological biases that cause the failure of many in investment. These, among all, include Apophenia (illusory correlation), confirmation bias, availability heuristics, consistency bias, normalcy bias and representative heuristics. While these biases aid us in dealing with the ever-increasing information that is surrounding us, they are exactly the reasons why most people fail in investment, despite being able to keep their emotions aside when making financial decisions. These biases distort the thinking process of human being, causing our rational analysis to be somewhat irrational without us realizing it. If you are interested in knowing more about these biases, do come for my coming free public seminars (The details of the events will be posted here, so do follow my post closely). Alternatively, you can wait for my detail write-up on these biases, which is expected to be released in May or June.

Before ending my seminar, students who are interested in learning further on investment are given the opportunity to attend my 2-days intensive workshop, in which I will touch mainly on technical tools that work extremely well in Malaysia. Also in the 2-days workshop, I will be teaching on anticipative analysis and sentiment analysis, two of which are important in the planning process of investment and also in protecting one’s capital from catastrophic losses. I must say that I am both happy and surprised to see so many students who are eager to expand their knowledge in investment. To know more about the 2-days intensive workshop, just send an email to [email protected] to ask for the details.

Of course, at the end of the seminar, I did not forget to do some networking with some of the enthusiastic students.

Thank you UCSI AFSA for giving me the opportunity to share my knowledge with the students and good job in organizing such a wonderful event for the students. I look forward to returning in May to continue educating the students. =)
