本期主题: Less is More: How Corporate Bond Mutual Funds Signal Their Abilities

摘要:

I provide a model to illustrate that when the abilities of fund managers are unobservable, high-skill mutual fund managers can signal their ability by taking on extra investment risk. This practice is more costly for low-skill fund managers, and thus they do not mimic it. Consistent with the model predictions, I find that some U.S. corporate bond mutual funds intentionally remain silent on risk-related goals in their prospectuses, and the alpha of those funds is higher than that of their peers. In addition, high-skill funds have higher exposures to indexes with higher risk level. The signaling practice of high-skill funds influences the choices of investors. Specifically, investors with high risk aversion concentrate on low-skill funds, which could exacerbate the fragility of low-skill funds and distort incentives for high-skill funds. Empirically, I find that investors of low-skill funds are more sensitive to bad performance and that high-skill funds are more likely to misreport to Morningstar to boost performance and attract fund flows.
