We investigate experimentally whether higher trust leads to increased performance by relying on simple trust games. Our results show that trust and performance are positively related but not as strongly as suggested in the investment game. As a side result, we observe that the rewards of the subjects'investment decisions are more equally shared than in the standard investment game.
