Behavioural Insights & Financial Wellbeing

Improving employee wellbeing by reducing financial anxiety

The emerging science of behavioural economics is increasing our understanding of the way we make decisions. This knowledge is helping businesses develop more profitable models, regulators more effective controls and governments more efficient incentives. Unfortunately, it is used less by individuals to improve their choices.

This session will explore the role financial anxiety plays in more general mental health and the cost to individuals, businesses and society as a whole. We will go on to look at how understanding from behavioural economics can be used to help people improve their financial decisions and worry less about money.

By the end of the seminar you will have a greater insight into the surprising effectiveness of a timely gentle nudge.

What people have to say about previous events....

The masterclass at Chadwicks, for me is a fantastic way to boost my knowledge in an important field which I often feel the effects from, yet seldom get to learn about. A wonderful setting at the enterprise centre, amongst like-minded company.

Beginning to plan seriously for retirement and being a relative newbie in Norwich, it was refreshing to be introduced to a firm that places great emphasis on technical analysis and thoughtful planning. Too often, in my experience, IFAs are more concerned with style over substance but Chadwicks, through their Masterclass sessions offer real insight into investment management and retirement planning. Whether as a professional adviser or, like myself, someone looking for genuine insight into the changing times of today, I would recommend the sessions wholeheartedly.
