Knowing your client should be the first step in every financial advice, and especially since the financial crisis of 2008-2009, it is the main keyword in financial supervision. In this module, we dig into a few essential elements of client profiling, such as What are the client’s investment beliefs? What is the client’s risk appetite and how can we measure it? What behavioral biases are well known and how can we cope with these? The answers to these questions amongst others will provide you with building blocks to make a sound and “supervisory proof” investment policy statement of your client.
