The investment industry is on the cusp of a major shift, from Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) to Behavioral Finance, with Behavioral Portfolio Management (BMP) the next step in this transition. This book focuses on how to harness the price distortions that are driven by emotional crowds and use this to create superior portfolios.
