Abstract

This study analyzes the efficiency in the management of pension funds in Spain through a representative portfolio of core values where pension fund managers invest in. Through econometric techniques and using a model rooted in the tradition of mean-variance models, the existence of inefficient management and portfolio composition is observed, at a time of profound changes in European pension systems. RESUMEN El presente estudio analiza la eficiencia en la gestión de los fondos de pensiones en España a través de una cartera representativa de los principales valores donde invierten los gestores de fondos de pensiones. A través de técnicas econométricas y mediante un modelo de media-varianza, se observa la existencia de ineficiencia en la gestión y composición de las carteras, en un momento de profundos cambios en los sistemas de pensiones europeos.
