An examination of counterintuitive investor behavior has won a best paper award for three Naveen Jindal School of Management finance professors. The trio investigated the puzzle of why actively managed mutual funds attract more investment dollars even though they generally perform more poorly than their passively managed counterparts.
Associate Professors Valery Polkovnichenko and Feng Zhao and Assistant Professor Kelsey Wei took home the Best Paper Award from the 2013 Asian Conference of the Financial Management Association International for their research.
