The European recognizes organizations and individuals that stand out from the crowd and are consequently moving their industries forward.
Mag. Dr. Markus Schuller, MBA, MScFE / Founder & Managing Partner:
“We are particularly proud and delighted to have been granted this award as applied behavioral finance specialist. Today we are being recognized for having diligently, persistently and relentlessly worked on our effective intervention framework to empower professional investors in and around Europe.
Our academic and commercial success has proven our framework to significantly improve the investment decision quality of our customers. Over the years, a diverse range of asset managers and asset owners across different cultures, sizes and levels of sophistication trusted our service. Clients of our coaching, consulting and Behavior-tech solutions aggregate to more than EUR 100 billion in Assets under Consultancy since inception.
The first years of Panthera were mostly spent as a think tank, translating latest insights of a range of behavioral and financial research realms into a proprietary intervention framework that effectively facilitates directed change. Calling those years challenging would mean to use a euphemism, as back then investment professionals were even less considerate about their own decision quality than today. It boils down to one question: does one want to become a better professional investor? We are the litmus test whether this is true. If so, we act like a personal fitness coach to make it happen.”
