How does psychology play into the way we save, spend, and invest? In this session, you’ll learn how different aspects of psychology, including developmental, cognitive psychology, and clinical psychology, play into both individual choices and financial planning relationships. We’ll distinguish between two sides of financial psychology: client psychology, which focuses on the client-advisor relationship, and individual differences, which focuses on the client as an individual. You will learn how life experiences, personality, and other characteristics set the stage for future financial behaviors, as well as how to use structured interviews and assessments to learn more about the financial psychology of clients. NOTE: the full slide deck for this session will not be shared, but key takeaway slides will be provided.
