It perfectly describes all the phases that a revolution goes through before finally triumphing.In fact, it is an apocryphal quote since Gandhi is not the...

Non-Fundamental Demand and Style Returns

Non-Fundamental Demand and Style Returns

2810310.3386/w28103November 2020We present causal evidence that non-fundamental correlated demand exerts a first-order impact on style returns. Mutual fund investors chase fund performance via Morningstar ratings, regardless of the rating methodology. Until June 2002, ratings depended on fund returns without any style adjustment, and thus mutual funds with the same investment style had highly correlated ratings. This methodology led rating chasing investors to direct capital into winning styles, exacerbating return chasing behavior. Capital flows exerted non-fundamental price pressure on...

The Market Risk Premium for Unsecured Consumer Credit Risk

The Market Risk Premium for Unsecured Consumer Credit Risk

2802910.3386/w28029October 2020We use the prices of credit card asset-backed securities to study the market risk premium associated with unsecured consumer credit risk. The consumer credit risk premium has historically been comparable to high yield corporate bond spreads, but has increased dramatically since the financial crisis. We find evidence that this increase is primarily due to balance-sheet costs imposed by recent changes in regulatory capital requirements which have effectively placed credit card securitizations back onto issuer balance sheets. These changes in capital regulation...
