Document Type

Conference Proceeding


In this paper, we use quantile regression estimate and data from 2001 to 2003 to analyze the investment style for different types of open-end funds in China. The main result is that the investment style of growth funds, balance funds and value funds in China share some commonality. They all prefer investing in large-cap, mid-cap growth stocks and small value stocks. Value fund prefers value stocks to growth funds and balance funds, and it invests evenly between growth stocks and value stocks. By analyzing the change in investment style of Hua-xia Large-cap fund using quantile regression, we obtain some very inspiring conclusions.
