About Greg Davies:

Greg is the Head of Behavior at Oxford Risk, a London-based company providing behavioral finance expertise and technology to advisors around the world.

In addition to starting the first ever behavioral finance team in the banking world while at Barclay’s, he’s a specialist in applied decision science, behavioral finance, and financial well-being. And, if that wasn’t already enough, he co-authored the book Behavioral Investment Management.

And, maybe most importantly, in my Twitter poll asking fellow advisors and planners who they would want to listen to at a roundtable discussion of behavioral finance, Greg was one of only a couple people whose name was mentioned numerous times.
