The Handbook of Investors’ Behavior during Financial Crises (ePub) provides fundamental information about investor behavior during turbulent periods, such as the 2008 global financial crisis or the 2000 dot-com crash. Contributors share the same behavioral finance techniques and tools while analyzing behaviors across a variety of asset classes and market structures. The eBook provides novel insights about the influence and effects of regional differences in market design. Its distinctive approach to studies of financial crises is of key importance in our contemporary financial landscape, even more so since the accelerated process of globalization has rendered the outbreak of financial crises internationally more commonplace compared to the previous decades.

  • Includes information about institutional and retail investor behavior
  • Encompasses quantitative, empirical and regulation-motivated studies
  • Analyzes optimal financial structures for the development and growth of specific regional economies

Financial crises are extraordinarily complex, necessarily involving a huge number of elements. This ebook volume contributes to our understanding of this complexity by cleverly addressing a substantial range of the contributing factors and behaviours. The editors have picked contributions to provide an excellent reminder that we should not oversimplify our understanding of how events evolve, and how markets, regulators and investors tackle them.” — Mardi Dungey, University of Tasmania
