Portfolio Management 3-228-07 Albert Lee Chun The Institutional Environment Lecture 1 09-02-2008 1 Portfolio Management This course Portfolio Management complements the course Investments (2-201-99) by exploring various issues underlying asset management. This is the most fundamental attribute of any professionally managed portfolio. Even if most of the concepts presented in class are specific to portfolios consisting of shares or stock market indices, the
majority of these concepts apply to a wide variety of financial asset categories. In this course, students will become familiar with fundamental concepts of portfolio management including efficient frontier portfolios, multifactor models, financial asset pricing models, market efficiency and the performance evaluation of professionally managed portfolios.

Costs of Investing in Mutual Funds Entry fees (Front-end loads) Diminish investors initial NAV Many no-load funds exist Many load funds charging between 0 and 8.5% exist Exit fees (redemption or Back-end loads) Declines toward zero the longer the fund is held Most funds charge no exit fees Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-25
4-25 25 Costs of Mutual Funds Operating expenses Transaction fees Distribution fees Cover the costs of buying/selling securities In the US: allowed to deduct up to 1% of their
assets per year to pay for sales commissions and promotional expenses Management Expense Ratio (MER) Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 26 Example $1,000 in a fund with up-front load fee of 3%. 1% per year annual management fee
Redemption fee of 1.5% After 90 days, liquidated at NAV of $1,010. During the 90 days you received: a $5 cash dividend disbursement and a $15 capital gain disbursement. Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 27 Costs of Mutual Funds
Return over the 90-day period Management fees in dollars over 90 days : 0.01 x (90/365) x $970 = $2.4 Redemption fee in dollars $1,010 x 1.5% = $15.15 90-day return : $5 $15 $1,010 - $970 - $2.4 - $15.15 - $30 1.25% rt $970 $30 Albert Lee Chun
Portfolio Management 28 Impact of Costs on Performance Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 29 Trading Scandal with Mutual Funds Late trading allowing some investors to purchase or sell later than other investors Market timing allowing investors to buy or sell on stale net asset values
Example: Exploiting time-zone differences Net effect is to transfer wealth from existing owners to the new purchasers or sellers Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-30 4-30 30 Investment Performance of Mutual Funds Albert Lee Chun
Portfolio Management 4-31 4-31 31 First Look at Mutual Fund Performance Benchmark portfolio: Wilshire 5000 Index. Figure 4.4 shows that average mutual fund performance is generally less than broad market performance measured by the index. Return on average mutual fund was below the Whilshire 5000 index 21 out of 35 years from 1971 to 2005. The average return on the index exceeded
that of the mutual fund by 1% Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-32 4-32 32 Performance vs. the Index Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-33 4-33 33
Is Performance Due to Skill? The must be good mangers and bad managers. So do good managers consistently outperform the index? To test this, we seek evidence of persistence in returns. If good performance is due to skill then those who rank in the top performing half in one period would be expected to do well in the next period. Albert Lee Chun
Portfolio Management 34 Do winners stay winners? Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-35 4-35 35 Persistence in Fund Performance The Malkiel study suggests that some funds show consistent strong performance but it seems to only be true in the 70s.
Other studies using Canadian data are suggestive of good managers outperforming the market this is also inconclusive. Other studies suggest that bad performance is more likely to persist than good performance. Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 36 Survivorship Bias
Yet worst performing funds go out of business. So when looking at mutual fund rankings of 5 year returns, we should remember there are many funds that failed to survive 5 years. Hence, the performance of the surviving firms will be upward biased. This is known as a survivorship bias. Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 37
Sources of Information on Mutual Funds PALTrak (Morningstar) Wiesenbergers Investment Companies (US) Morningstar (US) Investment Company Institute (US) Popular press (Globefund) Investment services (SEI, Comstat, etc.) Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-38 4-38
38 Index Funds Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-39 4-39 39 Costs of Index vs. Mutual Funds Index funds do not need as large a staff Decisions about what stock to buy have already
been made based on index commitment. Savings are passed along to investors Average management fee for a managed common stock mutual fund: 1.4% Management fee for Vanguard Index Trust in the US : 0.18% Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 40 Example
Investments performance over the long run Initial investment of $100,000 Assume a 10% gross annual return for both funds: Vanguard Index Trust 500 Mutual Fund charges a 0.18% management fee for a net annual return of 9.82% Vanguard Index Average The Average Managed Mutual Fund charges Trust 500 Managed Fund a 1.4% management fee for aMutual net annual $228,000 After 10 years
return of 8.6% $255,000 After 20 years Albert Lee Chun $651,000 Portfolio Management $521,000 41 Index funds Advantages of index funds Management expenses are minimized
Higher returns No load funds Slow turnover Underlying indexes experience slow turnover; Leads to lower commissions Tax efficiency Slow turnover leads to unrealized and untaxed capital gains Taxed when investment is sold Albert Lee Chun
Portfolio Management 42 Index funds Disadvantages of index funds May be poorly managed There may be some tracking error: Tracking Error = Return of index Return on indexed portfolio Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management
43 Index funds Tracking errors can occur due to: Management fees Manager didnt invest in all target index securities. Weighting scheme differed from that of the target index. Delayed reaction to changes in targeted index Manager may try to outsmart the market (enhanced indexing) Use of derivatives of the securities rather than the securities themselves ( lower commissions ) Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 44
Index funds To reduce tracking error, portfolio may contain more of the different securities contained within the target index. As the number of different securities held within the portfolio increases, the commissions are likely to be higher. Portfolio managers may try to reduce trading costs but this can increase the chance of tracking error. Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management
45 Exchange Traded Funds ETFs allow investors to trade index portfolios like shares of stocks. Examples iShares, SPDRs and Vipers Indexed with same weights used in the target index Unlike mutual funds: Order executed immediatelynot at marketon-close prices Management fees are below 0.18%
Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-46 4-46 46 ETF Products Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 4-47 4-47 47 Advantages of ETFs
Advantages of exchange index traded funds Trade continuously. Can be bought/sold throughout the day rather than just market-on-close prices Can sell short, and can do so on a down-tick They usually cannot use derivatives so investors are not subject to counterparty risks i.e. wont have tracking error from the misuse of derivatives Lower costs
Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 48 Wealth Accumulation 1$ invested in the following from end of 1925 to end of 1999 would have increased to : Annual Return Ending Wealth S&P 500 11.3% $2,845.

bond 5.2% $43.93 U.S. Treasury Bills 3.8% $15.64 Asset Class Even a fairly small annual return can create large longterm results n Method
Ending Wealth Inflationof computation : (1 + return) = 3.1% $9.39 Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 49 A Note of Inflation Inflation : the purchasing power of $1 is not the same from year-to-year (it decreases) $1 of purchases made in 1925 would cost $9.39 by 1999
$2,845.63 after adjusting for inflation is worth in real terms: $1 x (1 + 0.030728)74 = $9.39 $2,845.63 $9.39 = $303.05 While the accumulated real wealth is much lower than the nominal wealth, it is still an impressive number Albert Lee Chun Portfolio Management 50 Things to Read
