Abstract

This article studies the flow-performance relationship in French equity funds between 1992 and 2007. Using standard errors with clustering in two dimensions we find a convex relation between current net flows and past relative performance. For high performance funds, ranks of performance influence positively the flows of funds whereas for the medium or low performing funds, there is no significant effect of past performance. However, the relation seems qualitatively lower than in the American case. This is probably due to the specificities of French market, where most funds are distributed by banks. We also show that investors appear concerned about short horizons performance (6 months or 1 year). Moreover, convexity is more important for "the young" funds. Lastly, the convexity appears only in the standard market segments (France and Europe).
