Story
Tagline
Richard L. Peterson, M.D. - Behavioral finance and investment psychology
Introduction

Dr. Peterson has spent his career at the intersection of psychology and money.  From developing quantitative models to imaging the brains of investors, Dr. Peterson has emerged as an expert in the psychology of financial decisions and the mining of sentiment in social media. He developed the MarketPsych Ontology Language for Finance, which employs text mining software to identify and quantify economically predictive sentiments, and he is an internationally-recognized speaker in the area of behavioral finance and social media analytics.

Dr. Peterson is an investment advisor and was managing director of the psychology-based quantitative asset management firm MarketPsy Capital LLC from 2008-2010 where he was portfolio manager of their top-performing market-neutral fund. In the educational field he developed popular financial personality tests, published widely in academic journals and textbooks, and is an associate editor of the Journal of Behavioral Finance. His book, Inside the Investor's Brain (Wiley, 2007) was called "outstanding" and "a seminal text" on investment psychology by Barrons.

Dr. Peterson has appeared in CBS Evening News, CNBC, NPR, BBC, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and Harvard Business Review. Dr. Peterson received cum laude Electrical Engineering (B.S.), Arts (B.A.), and Doctor of Medicine degrees (M.D.) from the University of Texas.  He performed postdoctoral neuroeconomics research at Stanford University, is Board-certified in Psychiatry, and is a visiting scholar at Claremont Graduate University. He lives in Los Angeles with his family.
