Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine whether mutual fund attributes are related to investment performance. Organizational characteristics, such as size, age, family size and expense ratio, were collated with investment performance measured with the use of four different methods for a sample of 82 domestic equity funds operating in Poland in the period 2000-2015. The obtained results show that the asset size factor can translate into the generated return on investment. However, it must be indicated that this research is preliminary. It will enable the identification of the fund features which could be interpreted as determinants of performance in future studies employing more advanced research approaches.

Keywords: asset size, fund attributes, mutual funds, performance independence
