Where do “impatient” mutual funds invest? A special attraction for large proximate markets and companies with strategic investors
Our study examines the investment determinants of worldwide mutual funds from the perspective of economic geography. In particular, we investigate the preference of “impatient” mutual funds for specific countries. By analyzing a sample of 22,996 worldwide mutual funds over the period (2005-2009), we demonstrate that “impatient” mutual funds are favorable to large stock markets, markets with a high level of protection for shareholders, markets with familiar institutional practices and markets dominated by the presence of “strategic” investors as main shareholders of large listed companies.
