Mojmir Hlinka CEO AGFIF
Dipl Finance and investment expert AZEK by the Swiss Confederation.

Mojmir Hlinka

CEO (Chief Executive Officer) and Head of Investment Committee at AGFIF

Mojmir Hlinka is a Member of various Asset Management Associations among Swiss Financial Analysts Association SFAA.

BILANZ, the Swiss business magazine, made the following summary in MONEYMAKER:

"Growing up in Ostrava in a family of physicians, Mojmir Hlinka's path seemed to be set. But because his parents advocated more civil rights, the family had to flee Czechoslovakia for Germany. Mojmir Hlinka was 14 at the time and couldn't speak a word of German. "From hero to zero," he says today.

Instead of medicine, he then studied psychology and pedagogy. With fellow students, they invested in stocks like Yahoo for the first time. This was so successful that Hlinka built up a small asset management business alongside his studies.

Later, he had the offer from Zurich to do this in Switzerland after all. Hlinka took his small portfolio of clients and moved to Switzerland, where he still lives today, now happily married to a Swiss national and is father of two children. For almost 20 years he has been running AGFIF International, the first asset manager in Switzerland to use stock market psychology in its investments. With twelve employees, around one billion Swiss francs are managed in this way.

Hlinka only gradually realized how valuable the study of psychology is for understanding herd behavior on the financial markets.

The discipline of stock market psychology or behavioral finance only began to establish itself a little over 20 years ago. A milestone was the 2002 Nobel Prize for Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky's "Prospect Theory. It made decisions in risky situations more understandable and also made a strong impression on Hlinka.

His acquaintance with behavioral finance professor Thorsten Hens during his "AZEK" expert training further intensified the subject. Together with Hens, Hlinka developed an equity strategy based on Kahneman's theory. The program evaluates whether a stock's price is influenced more by momentum and psychology or more by fundamentals - for Hlinka "the crucial question on the stock market". So far, 56 percent of the buy recommendations are correct, 58 percent of the sell recommendations. Enough to be profitable in the markets. "Behavioral finance is not a ticket to print money, but it is exceedingly useful," says Hlinka.

Mojmir Hlinka, holds a Federal diploma by the Swiss Confederation for expert in finance and investments/CIWM. Mr. Hlinka is the Managing Director and Head of the AGFIF Asset Allocation Team where he is responsible for the overall business of AGFIF. Together with his team, Mojmir Hlinka he is in charge of the daily asset allocation of equities, fixed income markets and in macroeconomics and has a long history of working closely with Prof. Schips und Prof. Hens, and had enhanced the overall return in portfolios based on some of the academic theories they successfully in volatile markets implemented.

Mojmir Hlinka is a Member of various Asset Management Associations among Swiss Financial Analysts Association SFAA.
