Financial Crisis: A Recurring Phenomenon and Why do we often miss it?

Session starts from 03 Nov 2024

    ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

    Financial Crisis: A Recurring Phenomenon and Why do we often miss it?

    The 2007–2008 financial crisis, or the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), was a severe worldwide economic crisis that occurred in the early 21st century. It was the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression (1929). It was among the five worst financial crises the world had experienced, leading to a loss of more than $2 trillion from the global economy. Americans lost $9.8 trillion in wealth as their home values plummeted and their retirement accounts vaporized. Why did not the huge army of immensely powerful and talented bank regulators did not notice this huge and elementary risk?
    Something similar is again at play. Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) failed. Credit Suisse was about to fail until it was rescued by Swiss authorities through a deal with UBS. How could 100,000 pages of a regulatory rule book not be enough to prevent a crisis in the financial sector?
    When regulators fail, the onus is on managers, executives, and business leaders to effectively navigate their interests in this crisis-prone world. The common question arises: how do we identify that a crisis is building up, and what steps can be taken to survive a crisis and maintain competitiveness? Thus, this course aims to provide comprehensive insights into a broad range of risks that arise from financial activities with the potential to cause crises in the financial sector.

    OBJECTIVES

    This course aims to provide participants with a deep understanding of financial risks. It seeks to demystify the crisis and shed light on a simple cause (though missed often), which is always at play in any financial crisis. The cause stems from human behavior.
    Thus, the course aims to help managers to become cognisant of several behavioral biases that can
    affect their decision-making process and how those biases can sometimes lead to decisions that can collectively snowball into a full-fledged crisis. In summary, this course equips participants with the knowledge and tools to understand behavioral bias, the implications for financial decisions, and its linkage with the financial crisis.

    PEDAGOGY

    The course will be delivered using a well-rounded approach that combines concept explanations, reflections on real-life examples, and case studies showcasing historical crisis episodes. The lecture content is derived from up-to-date studies and surveys on the subject matter. Discussions will be experiential and interactive to encourage active participation, involving individual and/or group presentations. Additionally, action-oriented reflective exercises will guide participants in gaining a deeper understanding of the financial crisis. The ultimate goal is for participants to develop
    customized and actionable roadmaps for their respective organizations.

    WHO MAY ATTEND?

    This program is designed to benefit a wide range of participants, including managers and executives from various financial services companies such as banks, insurance companies, asset management firms, and credit card associations. It is equally valuable for entrepreneurs and startups aspiring to raise capital from the market. Regulators who play a crucial role in overseeing the financial sector
    can also benefit from this program.

    Behavioral Finance and Biases in Investing

    Behavioral Finance and Biases in Investing

    A uniquely designed residential programme offered to the working executives across India.

    Session starts from 02 Dec 2024

    Session ends on 05 Dec 2024



      ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

      Behavioral Finance and Biases in Investing

      Every day, we are faced with numerous decisions. Should I cross the road now or wait for the oncoming truck to pass? Do I want fries or a salad for lunch? What amount should I tip the cab driver? Often, we make these decisions effortlessly, relying on heuristics, which are mental shortcuts that help us navigate our lives. These shortcuts are crucial as they prevent us from being overwhelmed by the countless choices we encounter. However, there are situations where these shortcuts can lead to predictable errors. By being aware of these errors, we can avoid falling into their traps. For instance, did you know that we have a natural inclination to sell investments that are performing well but hold onto those that are performing poorly? It's also common for us to select suboptimal insurance payment plans and purchase insurance that is unnecessary. Furthermore, many of us fail to enrol in our employer's corporate retirement plans, even when they offer matching contributions. Behavioral finance focuses on studying these and various other financial decision-making errors that can be avoided if we understand the biases behind them. In this workshop, we explore these predictable errors and identify the areas where we are most susceptible to them. The aim is to provide participants with guidance towards making better financial choices. By learning how to enhance our spending, saving, and investing decisions, we can improve our financial well-being for the future.

      COURSE DETAILS

      Get to know what the programme is all about

      OBJECTIVES

      The following are the objectives of the workshop.

      • Explore the concept of “heuristic-driven bias,” which refers to our inclination to rely on rules of thumb that simplify the decision-making process but can also result in predictable errors. By understanding these cognitive biases, we can become more aware of their influence on our decision-making and make more informed choices.
      • Explore the classical economic model of consumer choice, which operates under the assumption that all our decisions are rational and sensible. We will examine the underlying theory of how individuals should behave, especially when it comes to financial decisions. However, our focus will shift towards analyzing how people actually behave in reality.
      • Pay particular attention to situations where we are prone to making decisions that seemingly contradict the principles of rational choice. By studying these scenarios, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of human behavior and decision-making processes in the realm of finance.
      PEDAGOGY

      A combination of lectures, discussions, presentations and hands-on practice of Excel based sessions would be conducted.

      EXPECTED PARTICIPANTS

      This program is designed to benefit a wide range of participants, including managers and executives mid and senior level who are interested in learning about behavioral finance.

                Strategies for Global Market

                The time has arrived to rethink about globalization in a rapidly fragmenting world. US Presidential election or Brexit referendum, in recent past, has created an increasingly uncertain and ever-changing business environment. So, the intriguing question is - whether globalization is going backward? Whether xenophobic nationalism and protec- tionism are going to be the prevailing global sentiment? Hence, this course will explore different contours of globalization that influence globalization strategies of MNCs in these turbulent times. Introduction This program will explore a few myths and facts about globalization. Subsequently, we will probe various policy instruments that a government can use to intervene in international trade and the effects of these policy instruments on the organization. We will also discuss - what all ‘differences across countries’ an organization should consider for entering a foreign market? What are the trade-offs between various strategic choices faced by an organization while going global? How these various strategic choices affect the perfor- mances of MNCs? Overall this program will help us to understand why some organiza- tions are more successful than its peers in pursuing a globalization strategy.

                  ‘Numbers have an important story to tell. They rely on you to give them a voice’ = Stephen Few Stories are and have always been the way we understand the world, and yet storytelling is not an inherent skill, especially when it comes to data visualization, and the tools at our disposal don't make it any easier. In this course you will discover the power of storytelling to bring your data to life and convey your message compellingly. The workshop will equip you with the philosophy, principles and tools of good design that will help you bring more impact to the data you have or the analysis you have performed.

                    In the rapidly evolving business world, organizations constantly seek changes. Fueled by societal changes due to COVID-19 disruption and Age of AI, the change is going to be the new normal. Even without such disruption, change efforts are known to not meet their goals, often because change agents lack proper change management skills.
