First among the three characteristics I want to highlight is that financial asserts tend to be volatile. Their value can go up and down a lot in short or long periods of time. They can even come to be worth nothing. This characteristic (a focus of finance theory from Bachalier (1900) to Black and Scholes (1973) and beyond) has considerable power to generate primitive impulses and emotions and to do so through time – on the one hand impatient, greedy excitement about potential future reward and on the other panicky anxiety about future potential loss.
The problem also surfaces insofar as the usual solutions to build confidence are not easy to apply. Real guarantees can be offered for secondhand cars but not for financial products (as indeed for most medical treatments). So while ratings agencies used ‘fancy’ statistics to provide what looked like guarantees (creating an attractive feeling) they did not offer ‘money back’. Triple A ratings offer a fast and frugal stamp of reputability like the various risk measures and protections offered by asset managers or, indeed, the solid architecture traditionally associated with banks.
In a sense this characteristic of financial assets means that they are never really bought or sold. The original decision to buy has to be made again and again and again for as long as one holds the stock. This creates an experience through time with which individuals must cope. Correspondingly, a decision to sell may shortly create regret and a wish to reverse it. The third important characteristic of financial assets is a consequence of the two earlier features and also gives rise to further inherent emotional conflict.
