Is There Such a Thing as Fund Manager Homesickness?

News summary by MFWire's editors

You might want to ask your mutual fund PM where she or he is from, and not just out of politeness.

A study cited by Bloomberg says that that kind of information may matter in how the PM runs the fund.

For example, the paper, The Home(-sickness) Bias of Foreign Holdings, finds that among U.S.-based fund PMs, a Brazilian-born manager who speaks fluent Portuguese and is familiar with the country's business culture had better results when investing in Brazilian companies than a German-born manager, according to Bloomberg.

Is this obvious? Is this useful? Who knows. To learn more, check out the article in Bloomberg.
