Barr Rosenberg, an acknowledged expert in the modeling of complex processes with substantial elements of risk, describes himself as “actively interested in human decision making in the face of risk, that is, how knowledge can be developed out of uncertainty, how decisions should be made in uncertain and risky situations, how people actually behave in these circumstances, and how they can be trained or otherwise influenced to act more wisely.” Today he focuses that interest largely on the human aspects of capital markets, including the dynamics of expectations and investor sentiment.
In September 2005, Dr. Rosenberg talked with members of the Journal of Investment Consulting’s Editorial Advisory Board about his early work in performance attribution and risk modeling, the development and role of manager style, and ways in which consultants can help investors become better-educated decision makers.
