Abstract

The paper examines the performance of Chinese equity mutual funds and investigates the impact of fund managerial attributes (tenure, team management structure, management educational factors and funds under management) on equity mutual fund performance during the sample period from 2005 to 2013. The equity fund performance is measured using the Stochastic Frontier Approach (SFA) and several traditional fund performance methods such as Jensen’s Alpha and the Sharp ratio. The paper reveals that team–management in a large fund size has a negative impact on fund performance. A fund managed by managers with a longer tenure will perform worse than a fund whose managers are relatively new to a fund. Furthermore, there is a negative relationship between funds under management and equity fund performance. This paper finds that only fund managers with Master’s degrees have a positive impact on fund performance in the Chinese equity mutual fund industry.
