  • To control for management company effects, we compare SRI and conventional funds run by the same management company and find that performance differences become small and statistically insignificant. These results suggest that differences between SRI and conventional funds may be explained by management company-level factors that determine both fund performance and the company's decision to manage SRI funds. We further explore this issue by distinguishing between SRI funds run by management companies specialized in SRI and those run by generalist companies.

  • As with every hypothesis test, inference based on alpha estimates can lead to the detection of a lucky fund, namely a fund with a significant estimated alpha, while its true alpha is equal to zero. When a single performance test is run on the estimated alpha of one fund (or one portfolio of funds1), luck is easily controlled by setting the significance level γ (or alternatively the Size of the test). For instance, if γ is set to 0.05, the probability of finding one lucky fund under the hypothesis that its alpha is zero amounts to 0.05, by construction.
