We    document that social trust, in mitigating contracting     incompleteness,  has an important influence on both the activeness and     effectiveness  of delegated portfolio management. Trusting investors   allow for   more  active global mutual funds, and managers reciprocate   in a trustworthy    way: trust-related active share delivers superior   performance of 2% per  year.

Air    pollution can significantly increase the disposition   effect of   retail  investors. Endogeneity tests based on the vast dissipation   of   air  pollution due to strong winds as well as the Huai-river policy   support    a causal interpretation. Our results have important  normative   implications   that air pollutions may incur indirect  (social) costs   associated with   enhanced behavioral bias.

The  global ETF industry provides more complicated investment vehicles    than   low-cost index trackers. The real investments of ETFs may  deviate  from their benchmarks to leverage informational advantages   (which  leads to a surprising stock-selection   ability) and to help   affiliated  OEFs through cross-trading, particularly in   ETFs  domiciled  in Europe.  ETFs may affect financial stability.

Short  selling and hedge fund holdings are largely two sides of the same coin:  they   jointly reveal important motivations for hedge fund   trading.  Opposite changes in the two sides, for instance, are likely to be driven  by information. This   identification allows us to explore   the  interesting properties of informed   trading.

Benchmarking    against an international stock index creates an embedded   currency    risk to mutual funds. Managers manage such a risk by concentrating    on   equity investments in fewer “safe” currencies. This concentration,      however, constrains managers from achieving the best equity  allocation.

In the presence of short selling, corporate insiders have   incentives to sell    more (shares from their existing stakes) and trade faster to preempt  the   potential competition from short sellers. Our results show that  short   selling can   indirectly improve the price efficiency of the  economy through its impact on other   informed traders.

Weak    institutions   at the country level jeopardize the quality of public    information. It may   appear that the problem can be solved by the    introduction of savvy mutual funds   that can   process semipublic    information.   This market-based corrective mechanism, however, is    costly because it   discourages the participation of less-informed    investors. We show that the   cost outweighs the benefit in general  and   destabilizes the market during   crises in particular. Weak  institutions propose a fundamental challenge to the   financial market.

The    literature documents a convex flow-return relationship in   the  mutual   fund industry. We show that heterogeneous linear response    functions   combined with the pooled analysis commonly used in these  studies   can   yield false convexity estimates.

工作论文

Below I summarize my working papers in research themes.

 Theme 1: The Real Impact of Market-based Mechanisms

Why  do we need the stock market and what are the benefits of market-based  economies? While the classical view states that the “invisible hand” can  help allocate resources, this research theme examines whether financial  markets can directly influence the real economy by affecting the  incentives of firms and investors therein. In this perspective, we can  view short selling as an external governance mechanism, an “invisible  hand” to enhance the contracting and informational efficiency of the  real economy (Massa, Zhang, and Zhang, 2015 RFS; and Massa, Qian, Xu,  and Zhang, 2015 JFE). Jiao, Massa, and Zhang (2016, JFE) further provide  a new approach to gauge the trading motivation of informed traders in  the market. Globalization is the second market-based mechanism that I  would like to explore.

 [1]      “Security Lending and Corporate Financing: The Case of the Bond  Issuance”, co-authored with Jennie Bai and Massimo Massa, working paper  2018.

The  security lending market allows institutional investors, such as  insurance companies, to lend out their holding assets in exchange for  cash collaterals, an important but understudied source of funding for  corporate bond lenders. Since these lenders are also the primary  investors of corporate bonds, their demand on certain types of bonds  originated from the security lending market can influence bond issuance  and pricing in the traditional corporate bond market, a demand-driven  perspective. This paper has been included in 2018 CICF, 2019 AFA. 

 [2]       “Does Financial Globalization Propagate Managerial Skills? Lessons  from the Mutual Fund Industry”, co-authored with Si Cheng and Massimo  Massa, working paper 2017. 

We  study how the globalization of finance may unintendedly reduce market  efficiency through low-skilled mutual fund companies. Particularly, it  may allow these companies to achieve product differentiation by  launching new funds catering to investors’ demand on foreign  index-related investment opportunities, rather than for the goal of  improving investor welfare or market efficiency. The associated  cross-border capital flows reduce price efficiency and liquidity.

This paper is included in the 2020 ASSA meetings.

 [3]      “Co-collateral Risk”, co-authored with Massimo Massa and Chengwei Wang, working paper, 2016.

We  propose a novel measure of stock-level margin constraints to study the  impact of funding risk on the cross-section of stock returns based on  daily cash collateral information collected from the short-selling  market. We show that its co-movements part (co-collateral risk) is  associated with a positive return premium.

This paper is included in the 2016 EFA, 2016ABFER, 2016 CICF, and 2016 AsFA meetings.

 

Theme 2: On Social, Environmental, and Cultural Issues 

Firms  and investors are not only located in financial markets but also  influenced by the society surrounding them. My next research theme aims  to explore the broader social and environmental issues that can  influence firms and investors. Lin, Massa, and Zhang (2014 RFS) is the  starting point of this theme, in which we show that weak institutions of  a country introduce a fundamental challenge to the efficiency of its  financial market. I further show that air pollution (2019 JFE) and  alcohol-related social norms are crucial in deciphering modern China.  Recently, I also explore issues like inequality and the rise of social  media.

 [4]       “Financial  Globalization vs. Income Inequality: The Surprising Role of Delegated  Portfolio Flows in Taming the Top 1%”, co-authored with Si Cheng and  Massimo Massa, working paper 2019. 

We  document a surprising finding that foreign capital inflows delegated  through the global mutual fund industry reduce the income of the top 1%.  To rationalize this observation, we construct a novel database of  worldwide sales revenues accrued to rich families in each  country-industry. We find that large foreign inflows induce local rich  families to sell highly concentrated yet profitable industries in  pursuing international diversification.

This paper is included in the 2019 ABFER meetings.

[5]       “The Impact of Sin Culture: Evidence from Earning Management and  Alcohol Consumption in China”, co-authored with Zhe Li, Massimo Massa,  and Nianhang Xu, working paper, 2016.

This paper is included in the Fifth Symposium on Emerging Financial Markets 2016 (as one of the final 10 out of 140 submissions).

We  study the impact of culture on firm incentives when formal institutions  fall short by linking earnings management to alcohol-related sin  culture in China. We find that firms in regions in which alcohol plays a  more prominent role are exhibit more earnings management. Moreover, a  more prominent sin culture in CEOs’ home region significantly enhances  earnings management, suggesting that corporate leaders can transmit and  propagate sin culture in society.

[6]     “Culture  Vs. Bias: Can Social Trust Mitigate the Disposition Effect?”  co-authored with Jie (Jennifer) Li and Massimo Massa, working paper  2016. This paper has been included in 2017 AsFA, FMA Asia, 2018 AFA.

We  show that, in addition to cognitive biases, investor behavior is also  strongly influenced by social norms. Based on a proprietary dataset of  complete account-level trading information for all investors in a large  mutual fund family in China, we find compelling evidence 1) of a  significant disposition effect among fund investors; 2) that a higher  degree of social trust is associated with higher flow-performance  sensitivity, and 3) that (high) trust-induced flows mitigate the  disposition effect.

 [7]      “Guru Dreams and Competition: An Anatomy of the Economics of Blogs”,  co-authored with Yi Dong and Massimo Massa, working paper, 2015.

This  paper has been included in the 2015 Asian Bureau of Finance and  Economic Research (ABFER) conference, 2017CICF and 2019 AFA.

The  rise of social media encourages guru dreams due to its low entry  barrier and highly skewed distribution of public attention. The pursuing  of guru status, however, may be achieved through information provision  or cheap talks. Based on a unique dataset of blogs covering S&P 1500  stocks over the period 2006-2011, we find evidence that social media  can be informative about future stock return, whereas competition  distorts opinions rather than ensuing better information.

Theme 3: On the Delegated Portfolio Management

This theme aims to explore three fundamental questions related to the delegated portfolio management: the impact of heterogeneous agents; the role of country-level institutions/culture (hence overlapped with my other research themes); as well as the rationale behind various organizational structures  of financial intermediaries. This line of research extends my previous  studies of Mamaysky, Spiegel, and Zhang (2007, 2008) and Spiegel and  Zhang (2013 JFE).

[8]     “Dollars versus Sense: Investor Demand, Managerial Skill, and Hedge Fund Startups”, co-authored with Charles Cao and Grant Farnsworth, working paper 2017. Revise and Resubmit, Journal of Finance. This paper has been included in 2017 AsFA, 2017 CICF, and 2018 AFA.

We  hypothesize that new hedge funds can be launched either to primarily  cater to investor demand or to offer new managerial skills and that the  latter type of skill-driven inceptions delivers better performance.  Empirically, we find that skill-driven inceptions (those launched under  low-demand conditions and that are not clones of existing funds.)  outperform demand-driven inceptions on a risk-adjusted basis by 4–5% per  year. Our results shed new light on now skills are dynamically  distributed in the hedge fund industry.


Theme 4: Implications of Market Frictions

This  theme aims to examine market frictions and how they influence asset  prices and firm incentives going beyond the predictions of traditional  asset pricing models. Note that social and cultural constraints can also  bring in frictions. Hence this part of researches focuses more on  frictions that occur within the scope of financial markets related to,  e.g., agency costs, inattention, heterogeneity, and preferences.

 [9]      “Segmented Institutional Investor Attention In Deciphering  Firm-Specific Information”, co-authored with Massimo Massa and Yijun  Zhou, working paper 2020. This paper has been included in the 2020 ABFER.

What  researchers often refer to as “firm-specific information” is complex in  nature—it synchronizes news originated from different categories of  economic sources. How institutional investors process information across  news-categories becomes crucial to market efficiency. We document that  skillful institutional investors specialize their trading in a limited  news-categories. The ensuing specialization may hinder market  informativeness because the inattention of even a small fraction of such  investors can impede information dissemination in their specialized  categories. Our results highlight a novel and fundamental channel that  affects market efficiency.

 [10] “When  is Good News Not Good News? Conflict of Interests among Shareholders in  the Choice of Innovation Policies”, co-authored with Po-Hsuan Hsu,  Sterling Huang (SMU), and Massimo Massa, working paper 2014. This paper has been included in the 2015 European Finance Association Annual Meeting (EFA).

We  document that the market responds negatively to family firms’  exploratory innovation. The market is right, because the controlling  families may engage in exploratory innovation for business  diversification reasons, which may not benefit market investors.  Consistent with this concern, we show that family ownership is  positively (negatively) related to exploratory (exploitative)  innovation, suggesting a strong diversification motivation.

The paper subsumes the older working paper of “The New Lyrics of the Old Folks: Risk Diversification of Family Ownership through Innovation and Exploration”,  and was listed on SSRN's Top Ten download list for: AARN: Corporations  (Sub-Topic), Economic Anthropology (Topic); CGN: Family Firms (Topic);  ERPN: Econometric Studies of Corporate Governance (Topic), Family  Business (Topic), Other Family Business (Sub-Topic); Firm (Topic);  Innovation (Topic), Other Firm (Sub-Topic); SRPN: Corporate Governance  (Topic), Innovation (Topic); Corporate Governance & Economics  eJournal; Corporate Governance: Governance of Special Types of Firms  eJournal; Econometric Modeling: Corporate Finance & Governance  eJournal; Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) eJournal;  Entrepreneurship, Innovation, & Growth eJournal; Entrepreneurship  & Management eJournal; and Sustainable Technology eJournal;  Entrepreneurship, Innovation, & Growth eJournal.

[11] “Firm-Level Investment Opportunity, Corporate Policy, and Asset Return”, working paper 2006.

When  firms maximize their earnings by dynamically responding to firm-level  investment opportunities, their systematic risk changes. However,  earnings from better investment opportunities are “safer” in the sense  that the increase in systematic risk is lower than the increase in  earnings. This suffices to create cross-sectional price differences such  as value premium and momentum, as compensation is needed for stocks  with bad firm-level investment opportunities.

[12] “Can Rational Investors Overreact – Evidence from Multiplicative risk and Asset Pricing Puzzles”, working paper 2008.

Multiplicative  risk, generated by the accumulation of sequential earnings shocks by  firms, can largely induce investors with different horizons to have  different evaluations for the same asset.  This creates a clientele  effect which may contribute to value premium.

案例开发  

Theme 1: Blue Ocean Finance—the Evolution of Corporate Treasury Operations in the 21st Century
This  is my first case theme on globalization and multinationals. Challenges  from the era of globalization have caught the traditional treasury  management structure of multinationals off-guard. The MNCs have  witnessed the evolution of three stages of treasury  over the past  decade, from the centralization of cash management to the innovation of  in-house banks, which are described in three individual cases of Tyco,  Lenovo, and Roche, respectively. A fourth case aims to provide a  strategy framework, cross-referenced with the theory of firms, to  understand the importance and implications of the trend.

Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, and Anne Yang, Research Associate  at INSEAD. This case is developed under the supervision of INSEAD Blue  Ocean Strategy Institution with special recognition to Dr Mi Ji,  Institute Senior Executive Fellow. 

Theme 2: Challenges and Opportunities of China 
My  second case theme aims to understand the excitement and challenges  faced by the concurrent Chinese economy and firms. The case theme will  include analysis regarding China’s currency policy of China, its booming  online economy, as well as the mechanism of propagating negative news  in the financial market—i.e., short selling.

Theme 2: Blockchains and FinTech 
My  third case theme aims to understand the excitement and challenges  brought forth by FinTech and Blockchains. In particular, I am interested  in how FinTech could potentially influence the business models and the  fundamental structure of the traditional banking industry and how  blockchains could help solve financing and related problems in the real  economy.

This case was  developed jointly by INSEAD’s Emerging Markets Institute and China  Finance Case Centre of PBC School of Finance. Under publishing process  (expected in 2019).

As  the director of China Finance Case Center, I have also developed about  10 cases in Chinese. The topics cover how Chinese companies got attacked  by short sellers in overseas market, how shadow banking affects  financial stability in the U.S. and in China, and how leading Chinese  companies, such AliBaBa and Shengzhou (the Chinese competitor of Uber),  innovate and change the economy.
