The influence of performance on the flows into Spanish equity funds
AbstractThis is a study about how performance influences on the behaviour of investors in Spanish domestic equity funds over an eight-year period. This is a broad timeframe given the relative immaturity of this market when compared to other more developed markets such as the American or English, among others. It is, in this respect, a pioneering and innovative study of the Spanish market. Well-defined behavioural guidelines are found, with results indicating that investors tend to consider the results obtained by funds in a fairly immediate past though they take a relatively broad time before making their decisions.
