By Sam Instone - January 15, 2019

Human beings are prone to biases.

Tim Richards, behavioural expert and blogger, says they can wreck investments.

One may be particularly important to understand this year.

Given 2020’s market performance and the news surrounding it.

It gives more prominence to the first thing that comes to mind.

Like a recent event for example.

Anything that can cause us to more readily recall something is more likely to bias us in terms of our decision-making.

With the performance of 2020 still fresh in our minds…

Understand what may be standing in your way of good decision-making.

And make this year your most successful one yet.
