Persistence And Skill In The Performance Of Mutual Fund Families

Prior research has shown that decisions made at fund family level can account for a substantial portion of the performance of the individual active fund managers in the family.

Using gross returns, we find that top-decile family performance persistence is comparable to that of individual funds, suggesting that families do not seem to create conditions to sustain outperformance.
