Peter Atwater writes and speaks extensively about how changes in confidence affect our preferences, decisions and actions. He is the author of the book Moods and Markets (FT Press, 2012) which details how investors can improve returns by using non-market indicators of confidence. His research on confidence has been mentioned in The Financial Times, Reuters and Time Magazine. Atwater has also been a commentator on television, appearing on CNBC and Fox Business News.

In 2008, Atwater founded Financial Insyghts to provide research on the financial services industry to money managers and hedge funds. Today, his firm advises asset managers, corporations and public policymakers on the role of confidence in human decision making.

Prior to founding Financial Insyghts, Atwater was a financial services executive. A lifelong creative thinker, he was a pioneer in securitization. He built and then ran JPMorgan?s asset-backed securities business. Over his career, he served as Treasurer of First USA and Bank One, CEO of Bank One Private Client Services and CFO of Juniper Financial (now BarclayCard USA).

Atwater received his B.A. in Economics from William & Mary, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
