The A, B, C of Personalized Banking

Easier perhaps for the coffee house than an international corporation?

Behavioral Economics is the Key to User Engagement in Banking: An Interview With Jeff Kreisler

The science behind behavioral economics confirms that people make wholly irrational decisions. In the finance world, identifying which emotions come into play when people make the financial choices they do, can help bankers and those in the finance sector to understand why, whether it’s buying a house, withdrawing cash, investing money or saving for retirement.

To shed some light on the subject, we sat down to chat with the man of the moment Jeff Kreisler, a Princeton educated lawyer turned author, speaker, comedian and advocate for behavioral science. He's co-author of Dollars And Sense and Editor-in-Chief of PeopleScience.com.
