NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Toews Asset Management, a New York-based advisory firm with $1.8 billion in assets under management, announces the official launch of its Behavioral Investing Institute, a behavioral training and coaching service for financial advisors and institutions that wish to enhance their practice management offerings. The Behavioral Investing Institute is now welcoming new consultations.
“We built the Behavioral Investing Institute coaching program after nearly a decade of research, training and feedback from real advisors,” remarked Felipe “Phil” Toews, CEO of Toews Asset Management. “We feel behavioral finance is an overlooked component of financial services and one that requires hands-on coaching to be truly grasped and put into practice. Now, arguably more than ever, is a time when financial advisors should be equipped with all the tools to sustain, improve and grow relationships with old and new clients. An understanding of decision making, investor tendencies and portfolio design is a core component of what we want advisors to take away from our training.”
The cutting-edge Behavioral Investing Institute provides an immersive and customized training schedule for advisors individually or in groups. Their coaching program attempts to help advisors transform and differentiate their practices by becoming behavioral coaches to their clients. To achieve this, the Behavioral Investing Institute assesses the use and application of behavioral guidance tools that seek to change the way clients perceive and emotionally respond to varying market environments. In addition, each advisor or institution will have a seasoned behavioral finance expert to walk them through every step of the process.
“We do not teach abstract theory or add to an advisor’s vocabulary of phrases that end in with the word, ‘bias,'” said Dan Kullman, Director of Education and Training at Toews Asset Management. “The Behavioral Investing Institute teaches actionable steps that can guide advisors to make adjustments and improvements to their businesses that potentially lead to better relationships with clients. We want to help advisors address emerging investor issues and behavioral biases that could impact their decision-making. It’s important to understand these triggers to create an exceptional client experience and attempt to enhance relationships.”
Toews Asset Management’s behavioral finance experts have educated over 140 advisors about behavioral finance.
“Clients, traditionally speaking, hire a financial advisor to manage their money — not realizing that person should be a behavioral coach too,” stated Kullman. “We see this as an opportunity for advisors to grow their businesses in an increasingly uncertain market environment by improving their knowledge and ability to work with clients, even in more dire situations.”
