Virtual Issues of Financial Management

Recently Published Virtual Issue: Mutual Funds curated by Russ Wermers

The research on actively managed mutual funds is vast in scope—reflecting the rapid growth in the presence of mutual funds in the world economy.[1] Over the past decade, academic researchers have generated new insights about mutual fund performance that eluded prior research—both due to the lack of data and due to scientific advances in the understanding of the mutual fund organizational structure and industrial organization.  In this virtual issue, I explore several papers of great interest that have been published in Financial Management—i.e., those that I deem to be particularly innovative in their exploration of mutual funds. For sure, many other excellent papers have been published on mutual funds in FM. Yet, I decided, in this issue, to focus on those papers that break new ground in some of the economic drivers of this industry, which I also believe will help to guide young researchers who are seeking future topics of interest. Click here to read the full issue.
