Asset Management

Andrew Ang

Oxford University Press

Mutual fund managers are talented, but, on average, none of that skill enriches asset owners. The average mutual fund underperforms the market after fees, investors chase funds with high past returns only to end up with low future returns, and larger mutual funds do worse than smaller funds. While the Investment Company Act of 1940 gives significant protection to ordinary investors, most mutual funds are run for the benefit of mutual fund firms rather than investors.
