Decisions of domestic equity fund investors: determinants and search costs
AbstractIn the present study, we confirm the asymmetry of the performance-flow relationship documented in the literature, but with the particularities of the sample of Spanish funds. Thus, we conclude that mid-performers show no significant influence on investor decisions. The panel data analysis also allows us to conclude that custodial and management fees and the size of the fund have a negative impact on the flows into funds. Empirical evidence is provided on the differential response of investors to the decision factors depending on the market states.
