【本期主题】It’s all about what you lose: downside loss and mutual fund performance
We find funds with high downside loss significant underperform funds with low downside loss by about 4.3% per annum using risk-adjusted performance. The spread in the per-formance of the two groups of funds persists in the future. Placebo test using index funds and stocks does not show a similar spread, suggesting that the spread is unlikely to be spurious or due to chance. Funds with high downside loss tend to be smaller, younger, and poor recent performers { characteristics typically associated with funds’ need to attract greater investor ows, and greater risk-taking behavior. Funds with higher downside loss also display a strong tendency to invest in stocks with lottery features that help attract investor ows especially from retail investors. Taken together, inferior performance of funds with high downside loss appears to be driven by funds holding lottery-type stocks and exhibiting lower skill in risk management.
