Abstract

(paper is in Dutch) This study surveys the behavioural finance literature. It discusses both the literature that incorporates behavioural considerations into rational models, and the literature that concentrates on the role of prospect theory and the effect of cognitive-psychological mechanisms on the behaviour of financial market participants. The study concentrates on the latter. The implications of cognitive psychology on financial market behaviour are described. Also, the potential consequences of the application of behavioural finance concepts for financial market (in)efficiency are discussed.
