"Psychology seems to lie behind all the ways that potentially improve stock returns." - Ben Stein and Phil DeMuth, The Little Book of Alternative Investments
The Heart and Mind of Behavioral Investing
Nocturne Capital is an investment management firm whose approach is rooted in the science of behavioral finance. Our patient, contrarian approach seeks to capitalize on investor misbehavior and arbitrage emotion-driven mispricing. Nocturne's edge is derived from a stringent process that mitigates fund manager irrationality, a high conviction approach that offers the potential for true outperformance and a proprietary tactical overlay that measures market sentiment.
But if behavioral finance is the science upon which our approach is predicated, then the values of our clients are the beating heart. For qualified investors and institutional clients, we offer bespoke ESG/SRI portfolios that are created with the unique values of our clients in mind. By combining research-based investment practices with the deep-seated values of our clients, we become partners in the creation of true wealth that exceeds simple financial gain.
Dr. Daniel Crosby, a behavioral finance expert and sought after thought leader on market psychology, is the founder of Nocturne Capital. Dr. Crosby created the sentiment and valuation measures that serve as the overlay for Nocturne's tactical strategy. His ideas have appeared in the Huffington Post, Think Advisor, and Risk Management, as well as columns for WealthManagement.com and Investment News.
Daniel was named one of Investment News "40 Under 40" and a “financial blogger you should be reading” by AARP. Daniel's second book, "Personal Benchmark", co-authored with Charles Widger of Brinker Capital, was a New York Times bestseller that outlines a highly personalized approach to investing that aligns intention with action while fostering an investment experience that is both enjoyable and rational.
