In episode #267, Clare Flynn Levy is founder and CEO at Essentia Analytics, a software firm that allows fund managers to capture data about their own behavior so they can improve their investment processes. In this interview, she discusses a fundamental problem that investment professionals share: they sell skill, but get paid for performance, and yet the two are not the same. Ms. Levy explains how and why it’s important for fund managers to keep track of their investment processes so they can learn to avoid, or minimize, behavioral biases in the future.
