The Performance of Bank-Managed Mutual Funds

  • Frye, Melissa B
Registered author(s):

    The ability of banks to offer proprietary mutual funds has expanded over recent years, and the mutual fund industry has been a significant growth area for banks. I examine the growth and performance of bank proprietary bond mutual funds. The empirical results show no evidence that bank-managed mutual funds underperform nonbank funds. I find some evidence that bank managers are more conservative than nonbank managers in terms of investment strategy and that banks appear more likely to target individual rather than institutional investors. Also, I find that abnormal fund performance does not appear to be a significant determinant of the net asset flows into and out of bank-managed mutual funds. Rather, the results suggest bank investors rely mainly on past marketing information and the general reputation of the bank.
