Comment ne pas suivre les autres dans le monde de la gestion d’actifs ?


  • Sylvain Marsat
  • Yamina Tadjeddine


The mimetism observed on financial market is often explained by an individual choice. These explanations do not consider social influences of norms, organization and institutions. We propose to analyze the social roots of financial imitation by considering decision done by mutual funds’ managers. Our analysis is based on interviews and mobilized Institutional Theory.
