    Builiding on his research as a behavioral finance scholar, "What Investors Really Want" explores the real world of investing, examining the mind-sets and motivations behind major money decisions. Statman reveals:

    • How our desire for free investment lunches can leave us with no lunches
    • How our desire to win the investment game can turn us into losers
    • How we struggle between spending too much and spending too little
    • How to know what's really important in life
    • How to recognize and confront the regret that accompanies losses

    Meir Statman is the Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance at the Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University, and Visiting Professor at Tilburg University in the Netherlands.

    His research on behavioral finance has been supported by the National Science Foundation, CFA Institute, and Investment Management Consultants Association (IMCA) and has been published in the Journal of Finance, Financial Analysts Journal, Journal of Portfolio Management, and many other publications. A recipient of two IMCA Journal Awards, the Moskowitz Prize for Best Paper on Socially Responsible Investing, and three Graham and Dodd Awards, Statman consults with many investment companies and presents his work to academics and professionals in the U.S. and abroad.
