Starting a new event format, the FiRe platform held its first FiRe Lecture on December 12, 2018. Our lecturer, Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck, University of Gothenburg) presented his research in a talk titled "Heuristiken und Verhaltensanomalien von Finanzprofis". Filling the room with a large audience of interested listeners, Michael managed not to disappoint. He took his listeners on a tour through anchoring and framing effects and questions of risk preferences and perceptions to explore how financial professionals' behavior differs from that of lay people.

The FiRe platform wishes to thank Michael for his exciting and thought-provoking talk. We also thank the Finance Club Graz for their help in organizing the event and the Capital Bank for their sponsoring.

The excitement builds before the start of the lecture.

Ines Wöckl (r, Finance Club Graz and FiRe) and Stefan Palan (FiRe) welcome the audience.

Peter Ladreiter (Capital Bank) welcomes the audience.

Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck, University of Gothenburg) gives his talk.
