Abstract: In this paper, I investigate the asset allocation ability of mutual fund investors. Specifically, I examine differences among non-proprietary brokers, proprietary brokers and direct channels regarding their asset allocation ability. In aggregate, mutual fund investors do not seem to have superior asset allocation ability. However, I do find that money flows through non-proprietary brokers show significantly higher asset allocation performance than money flows through proprietary brokers. This is consistent with the view that non-proprietary agents are more likely to act on behalf of their customers as opposed to proprietary agents who represent their affiliated companies.
