    Many candidates don't find enough time for the CFA Institute books. Schweser's is pretty good and covers all topics in less number of pages.

    Points Discussed in the Fifth Online Meeting

    During the Fifth Online Meeting, some strategies to tackle the Behavioral Finance questions were discussed:

    • Candidates need to read all the biases and memorize them
    • The cases (as part of an Investment Policy Statement) may ask questions related to risk tolerance which depends on emotional biases
    • The case study may also ask to classify the exact behavioral aspect/bias
    • Some questions that are applications of prospect theory, detection of dominance, isolation effect may be asked
    • Acronyms can be created to help in memorizing the biases. For example, to remember the different emotional biases the LOSSER (acronym) can help (this idea was shared by Jorge Adan).

    L- Loss-Aversion
    O - Overconfidence
    S - Self-Control
    S - Status Quo
    E - Endowment
    R - Regret Aversion

    Next meeting will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 7:30pm India time i.e. 10pm at Beijing, 9am at New York, 2pm at London. The meeting's agenda will be related to Private Wealth Management.

    This is a good initiative. But I am worried as we may be going a bit slow.
    Hopefully we'll complete the entire course on time.
