Combining the deep expertise and industry knowledge of Centapse with the academic rigour and research capabilities of Oxford Risk, the collaboration will offer behavioural finance consultancy, advanced data analytics, and intelligent decision-support systems. An expanded suite of risk profiling tools will be released for Oxford Risk Rating, already trusted by thousands of advisors profiling hundreds of thousands of investors worldwide.
Centapse is a consultancy firm dedicated to improving commercial outcomes by helping people make better decisions. Founded by Dr Greg B Davies, a behavioural finance expert who for a decade led the ground-breaking behavioural finance team at Barclays, Centapse combines extensive expertise with leading sector knowledge. Greg is a specialist in both the theory and practice of risk profiling and suitability (recently publishing New Vistas in Risk Profiling for the CFA Research Institute).
Dr Greg B. Davies, Founder of Centapse, said:
“Oxford Risk has an exceptional combination of expertise in the intersection of behavioural science, data analytics, and digital decision support tools. I am truly looking forward to designing new tools to improve financial wellbeing together with a team with such intellectual and academic depth.”
Professor Lord Krebs, Chairman of Oxford Risk, added:
“Greg is known as a thought leader in financial services and a regular speaker at key industry fora as well as a being an Associate Fellow at the University of Oxford Saïd School of Business. We’ve known him
for ten years and have great respect for his deep industry knowledge, which strongly complements the research and analytics capabilities of Oxford Risk.”
The new partnership will be the foundation of a significantly expanded suitability and profiling toolkit based on the Oxford Risk Rating platform, providing behavioural finance solutions for financial advisors, wealth managers, family offices, and trusts.
