Paul Craven founded Paul Craven Partners in 2014 with the specific aim to promote Behavioural Economics in business, believing that a better understanding of psychology – how real people make real decisions in the real world – provides a strong competitive advantage to those firms and individuals who embrace it, whether in investment, sales, technology or business more broadly.


Paul is a well-known industry public speaker on Behavioural Economics, and as well as giving keynote talks including at TEDx, offers private consultancy and decision-making workshops.


He has almost 30 years experience in the investment industry, having retired from Goldman Sachs Asset Management at the end of 2013 after six years where he was the Head of European Institutional Business. Prior to Goldman Sachs, Paul worked at PIMCO and Schroders.


Paul Craven now works with the investment committees of the Akzo Nobel and British Steel pension funds. He is also on the ‘panel of experts’ for #ogilvychange, the behavioural science unit of the Ogilvy Group.


Paul Craven has an MA (Hons) in History from Cambridge University, is a Freeman of the City of London and is a visiting lecturer at the London Business School.


Outside of work, he is privileged to be a member of the exclusive Magic Circle, meaning that he can offer an extra perspective on how “the mind plays tricks.”
