Abstract: Active portfolio management is associated with a costly search for information. This paper provides evidence on how this costly search affects the performance of European-based mutual funds that are actively managed and invest in Asia and Europe. The paper examines both the search for superior stocks by fund managers and the search by unit-linked funds for superior fund managers. Moreover, performance and the impact of geographical distance between the fund and the market are examined.
