Fund Managers and Elections

(p.127) 4 Fund Managers and Elections
Banking on Democracy

Javier Santiso

The MIT Press

Portfolio fund managers incorporate all types of economic, social, and political information in their investment decisions, and evaluate risks and uncertainties when they buy (or sell) a bond or stock. Through exploring fund manager asset allocation databases, this chapter looks at the ways investments in equities and bonds are affected by emerging market political events such as elections, and changes in the level of democracy. Several hypotheses on the link between finance and politics are tested in this chapter, by combining information from a database of portfolio flows towards emerging markets, with election and democracy information.

Keywords:   fund managers, asset allocation, portfolio flow, database, election, democracy
