This chapter discusses the aims of this study and gives further details regarding the methods of research used. The study generally attempted to evaluate how the market behaviour of professional traders in finance markets is affected by individual and circumstantial factors and how effective performance can be promoted by changes in managerial systems and controls, and other means of regulatory intervention. Although the participants of the study remain unidentified, we can say that they traded in a range of markets that included Europe, the US, Japan, South America, and other emerging markets. The participants were provided with a short questionnaire that measured a set of biographical variables such as basic socio-demographic data, education, seniority, and salary levels. The study made use of a risk assessment tool (RAT) to measure the range of cognitive biases. Performance was also measured in percentile.

Keywords:   managerial systems, socio-demographic data, research methods, biographical variables, risk assessment tool, performance measure
