“If we can follow just a couple of simple rules, we can overcome the behavioral errors which are the plague of so many investors.” - Daniel Crosby (Tweet)

Welcome to Top Traders Round Table, a podcast series on managed futures brought to you by CME Group. On today's episode, host Niels Kaastrup-Larsen speaks with Dr. Daniel Crosby, Chief Behavior Officer of Brinker Capital, and the host of The Standard Deviation Podcast. Dr. Crosby came to investment management through clinical psychology and therefore has a unique perspective on behavioral economics. The discussion ranges from how human behavior is evolutionarily ill-equipped for investment management, the importance of having rules for investing during turbulent times, and what investors can do to modify their behavior for success.
