Todays Topic – Framing, the bias around how information is presented

We have spoken about Framing Bias on The Financial Wellbeing Podcast before, have a catch up and listen to the brilliant Neil Bage give an explanation in Episode 65

Information can be presented in different ways to get different awards

Managing expectations

Producer Tommo’s Wellbeing Champion of the Year Award, helps in getting clients prepared to talk about their finances – the expectations around the conversations you will be having with clients.

Framing influences decisions in ways we don’t always intend

We frame our future around what we can currently afford.

We should start conversations about the future on wellbeing, not money

Money is the engine of wellbeing

Top 5 Tips around Framing Bias –

  • Base buying decisions on need, rather than getting a bargain
  • Keep eye on data being given for past investment fund performance
  • Consider if the advice around a product being given is positively framed?
  • Clean questioning – asking a question which is not leading, nor does it have your values
  • Re-frame in a positive way

If you cringe at what you did – you are moving forward
