Applied Financial Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 4, issue 1, 53-57

Abstract: The regional exposure and stock-selection ability of emerging markets mutual funds is empirically examined during the 2001 to 2005 time period. This sample of funds shows a clear preference towards the Asian markets and as a group show evidence of poor stock-selection ability. When the sample is partitioned between surviving and nonsurviving funds, only the subgroup of surviving funds show evidence of positive stock-selection ability.
