Käitumusliku investeerimise taskuraamat. Kuidas mitte olla iseenda suurim vaenlane

James Montier

Investori peamiseks probleemiks, ja paljuski tema suurimaks vaenlaseks, on ei keegi muu kui tema ise. Selle ebamugava tõeni on jõudnud terve armaada jagu tarku mehi, teiste seas James Montier. Piisab vaid pilgust investorite tegelikku kasumit kirjeldavale Dalbari uuringule, et selles isegi veenduda. Viimase 20 aasta jooksul on S & P 500 tootlus olnud igal aastal veidi üle 8%. Aktiivsed haldajad võtavad sellest 1–2% ja nii võibki jääda mulje, et investeerimisfondi üksikinvestorid teenivad 6–7%. Tegelikkuses on aga investorite tootlus vähenenud napi 1,9%ni aastas. Seda suuresti põhjusel, et enamasti on ostu- ja müügitehinguid kõige halvemal võimalikul ajahetkel tehtud. Ent pilt ei pea sugugi nii trööstitu olema, leiab Montier. Seda küll üksnes juhul, kui õppida ära nõks või paar, kuidas paremaid otsuseid langetada. Sestap viibki ta lugeja ringkäigule kõige levinumate käitumuslike väljakutsete ja mõtteeksimuste rägastikku, pakkudes välja strateegiaid, mille abil kaasasündinud kalduvusi lõplikult murda. Lisaks destruktiivsetele käitumisviisidele ja levinud mõttevigadele, mida Montier on oma muljetavaldava karjääri jooksul professionaalide juures korduvalt märganud, analüüsib ta psühholoogilisi tegureid, mis sedalaadi vigu põhjustavad. Ta jagab praktilist nõu, kuidas neid enda juures märgata ning seeläbi oma portfelli ja kasumit kaitsta. Sõna saavad ka investeerimismaailma tuntud näod, kes on püüdnud juurutada investeerimisprotsesse, mille abil käitumuslikke eksimusi minimeerida.

Data Privacy and GDPR Handbook

Sanjay Sharma

The definitive guide for ensuring data privacy and GDPR compliance Privacy regulation is increasingly rigorous around the world and has become a serious concern for senior management of companies regardless of industry, size, scope, and geographic area. The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes complex, elaborate, and stringent requirements for any organization or individuals conducting business in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA)—while also addressing the export of personal data outside of the EU and EEA. This recently-enacted law allows the imposition of fines of up to 5% of global revenue for privacy and data protection violations. Despite the massive potential for steep fines and regulatory penalties, there is a distressing lack of awareness of the GDPR within the business community. A recent survey conducted in the UK suggests that only 40% of firms are even aware of the new law and their responsibilities to maintain compliance. The Data Privacy and GDPR Handbook helps organizations strictly adhere to data privacy laws in the EU, the USA, and governments around the world. This authoritative and comprehensive guide includes the history and foundation of data privacy, the framework for ensuring data privacy across major global jurisdictions, a detailed framework for complying with the GDPR, and perspectives on the future of data collection and privacy practices. Comply with the latest data privacy regulations in the EU, EEA, US, and others Avoid hefty fines, damage to your reputation, and losing your customers Keep pace with the latest privacy policies, guidelines, and legislation Understand the framework necessary to ensure data privacy today and gain insights on future privacy practices The Data Privacy and GDPR Handbook is an indispensable resource for Chief Data Officers, Chief Technology Officers, legal counsel, C-Level Executives, regulators and legislators, data privacy consultants, compliance officers, and audit managers.

Predicting Personality

Greg Skloot

The ultimate playbook for using artificial intelligence to communicate effectively, build teams, and win customers Not long ago, we imagined a hyper-connected world full of trust and openness—a world where effortless communication would bring about a new understanding between people everywhere. Judging from our current environment, this vision of the future may have been overly optimistic. With infinite channels and countless voices flooding them with messages, most people have become highly skeptical and guarded by necessity. As a result, communication is much harder than ever before. Despite the unprecedented connectivity enabled by modern technology, we are far less likely to trust and to invest the time needed to build strong relationships. How can we use technology to reverse this trend? A groundbreaking new branch of artificial intelligence—Personality AI—may be the answer. Combining traditional machine learning, data analytics, and behavioral psychology, Personality AI helps professional communicators tear down walls, establish trust with their audiences, and utilize data to build meaningful relationships, strengthen empathy, and win more customers. Predicting Personality is a practical, real-world playbook for any individual or business whose success hinges on the ability to communicate effectively and build teams. Authors Drew D’Agostino and Greg Skloot—CEO and President, respectively, of Crystal, the app that tells you anyone's personality—show you how businesses can leverage Personality AI and machine learning to grow faster and communicate more effectively than was previously possible. This reader-friendly guide teaches you what Personality AI is, how it works, and demonstrates its practical applications in both life and business. This book: ● Explains how to understand personality types in various contexts, including sales, recruiting, coaching ● Provides guidelines for using personality data to learn and execute ● Explores ethics and compliance considerations surrounding the use of Personality AI ● Offers valuable insights from a leader in the business applications of Personality AI Predicting Personality: Using AI to Understand People and Win More Business is a must-have guide for C-suite executives, sales and marketing professionals, coaches, recruiters, and business owners.
