Abstract

(VF)Cet article étudie la performance des fonds de pension individuels britanniques (Individual Personal Pension Scheme). Moskowitz (2000) suggère que les fonds pourraient protéger les investisseurs contre les états défavorables de la nature. C’est pourquoi, nous proposons de mesurer la performance des fonds activement gérés sur les phases du cycle de marché durant la période octobre 1990 – novembre 2004. L’identification des phases (haussières et baissières) du marché des actions anglais s’appuie sur la méthode de Pagan et Sossounov (2003). Nos résultats sont moins prégnants que dans la littérature antérieure sur la performance des fonds mutuels pendant les phases du cycle de marché / cycle économique : les fonds de pension produisent des performances moindres en période de marché haussier et certains fonds protègent les investisseurs en marché baissier.(VA)This article studies the performance of UK individual personal pension scheme. Moskowitz (2000) suggests that mutual funds could protect investors against undesirable states of nature. Therefore, we measure the performance of actively managed pension funds during phases of the stock market cycle over the period October 1990 - November 2004. The identification of the phases (bear and bull) of the stock market relies on Pagan and Sossounov method (2003). Our results are less striking than in previous literature on the performance of mutual funds during phases of the market/business cycle: funds produce inferior performance during bull market and some funds protect investors during bear market.
