Decision Prosthetics to Improve Financial Services
• The important problem – and why neither corporates nor fintech are solving it
• The sweet spot – bringing together data, technology and behavioural science
• Going beyond Nudge – using the whole toolbox of behavioural design
• Using technology to enhance client engagement and wellbeing
In April 2016 he founded Centapse, a firm dedicated to applying sophisticated behavioural insight to design, develop, and deploy solutions across industry to help people (and organisations) make better decisions. Greg started, and for a decade built and led, the banking world’s first behavioural finance team as Head of Behavioural-Quant Finance at Barclays. He was the architect of Barclays’ behavioural profiling tools and holistic Wealth Philosophy, delivering solutions tailored to both financial and emotional investment needs; and he designed Barclays’ innovative behavioural approach to impact investing and philanthropy. He holds a PhD in Behavioural Decision Theory from Cambridge; is an Associate Fellow at Oxford’s Saïd Business School; a lecturer at Imperial College London; and author of Behavioral Investment Management.
