Quantitative Analytics Quarterly
What Factors Drive Investment Flows?
The “Quantitative Analytics Quarterly” research is the first edition
of its kind and a refresh of the 2015 report, “What Factors Drive
Investment Flows?”. The report finds that investors generally display
consistent preferences over time. Over the past three years, investors
preferred more established funds at a higher rate than the previous
period studied; and that performance is less of a driver of flows than
three years ago.
In this report, you will learn:
What fund, manager, and firm characteristics we examined to capture their relationship to past fund flows
How investors have generally displayed consistent preferences over time
Why performance is less of a driver of flows than before
