Henry Grunfeld Lecture

Henry Grunfeld Lecture: Behavioural Insights and Banking

< return to all events

Dr David Halpern, Chief Executive, Behavioural Insights Team

Businesses and banks have always tailored their offerings around customer behaviour, both consumer and corporate. For the providers, this means meeting needs or even identifying needs and providing solutions to improve lives and economics. Yet, a cynic might argue, businesses and banks take advantage of weaknesses and flaws in human behaviour for their own benefit hence the need for regulation. It may sound odd at first but imagine we could improve outcomes for both customers and financial service providers by positively working with the behavioural factors that influence human behaviour, perhaps even reducing the need for regulation and remediation.

Increasing availability of data and growing understanding of human behaviour now offer financial institutions a chance to redesign their efforts to encourage better decision making and ultimately better serve retail and wholesale customers.

Hear Dr Halpern share his views on how behavioural insights could lead to improved outcomes for the financial services world.
