Risk-Adjusted Performance, Selectivity, Timing Ability And Performance Persistence Of Hong Kong Mutual Funds
Source: Brunel University
This paper examines the performance of thirty Hong Kong mutual funds during the period from August 1995 to July 2005. The issues of risk-adjusted performance, selectivity, timing ability and performance persistence are addressed. The authors employ the signal-factor model, three-factor models and the measurements of Jensen's alpha and Treynor ratio to evaluate the weekly returns on the sample funds relative to the performance of the Hong Kong market benchmark. Treynor and Mazuy (1966)'s quadratic model is used for assessing selectivity and timing ability of fund managers. Performance persistence of Hong Kong mutual funds is assessed at successive two-year intervals based on their ranking according to both Jensen measure and Treynor measure.
