Tom Saler gives speeches and seminars on behavioral finance and neuroeconomics. The presentations illustrate the adaptive cognitive biases that undermine investment results. Importantly, he also demonstrates how to overcome those biases.
Mr. Saler is the author of three investment books and have written hundreds of articles for such prestigious financial publications as Barron’s, Bloomberg Personal Finance, Better Investing, Mutual Funds, Individual Investor, Consumer’s Digest, Consumer Reports, Your Money, and Institutional Investor. His “Historical Perspectives” column has appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for 20 years. He also co-authored a script for the “Secrets of the Great Investors” series narrated by Louis Rukeyser, taught investment classes at Marquette University for seven years, and has been a guest on the “Today” Show, CNN, NPR, and on numerous local radio stations nationwide.
Saler’s latest book — a critically acclaimed biography of the conductor Carlo Maria Giulini — was published by the University of Illinois Press. Recently, he was honored to provide an oral history of the book to the Rosenthal Archives of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Current projects include a stageplay and two screenplays.
