L'impact de la taille de l'actif sous gestion sur la performance des fonds de placement collectif


  • Linh Tran Dieu


Weanalyze the impact of fund size on fund performance. Using a sample of equity funds in the French market for the period from 2002 to 2014, we obtain a U-inverse relation between these two variables. Fund performance increases first and then decreases with fund size as assets under management reach a critical size. This result highlights the conflict of interest between investors and fund managers. Being payed a percentage of assets under management, fund managers try to maximize the fund?s size. An increase in fund assets, favorable to the manager, may negatively impact fund performance. Classement JEL?: G20, G23, G20.
