Abstract: In this dissertation I investigate the mutual fund industry, especially the three most important participants within this industry: mutual fund investors, mutual fund companies and mutual fund managers. The main research questions of this dissertation are: 1. Does rapid trading exist among German equity mutual fund investors? What are the determinants of rapid trading? Does rapid trading have a negative impact on mutual fund performance? 2. Do mutual fund investors, as a whole, have asset allocation abilities regarding their mutual fund investments? Are there differences in asset allocation ability among different mutual fund sales channels, especially between investors buying funds via non-proprietary and proprietary brokers? 3. Do fund companies allocate their fund managers to market segments in an efficient way, i.e. such that fund managers work in market segments in which their skills are rewarded best? 4. What are the characteristics and behavior of would-be entrepreneurs in the mutual fund industry? Do entrepreneurial fund managers change their behavior after they start their own firm?
