Abstract

This study reappraises the relationships among long-term performance, mutual fund business management, and economic shocks by taking 108 stock funds in Taiwan during 2007-2015 as observations. We find strong evidence of a nonlinear relationship between long-term performance and volatility index (VIX). Long-term performance is different under the volatility index threshold value and the control variables of turnover ratio, Sharpe ratio, and fee. Moreover, we note that fund managers cannot effectively overcome economic volatility. Frequently in the case of the best economic conditions, the fund managers can achieve better investment performance, but during an economic downturn they are unable to overcome worsening economic conditions, indicating that fund managers' operating strategy and professional ability need to be strengthened.
