Manager Alpha - Large Cap Value Funds

It is interesting to review the list of mutual funds that have provided the most and least alpha to investors over time (calculated over the longest period since fund inception or 20 years). For example, this list includes the 10 Large Cap Value funds that have provided the highest positive and negative percentage contributions to the asset weighted style and market benchmark alphas summarized in the August 2 post. These 20 funds provided over 50% of the asset weighted exposure for the 1047 LCV funds included in the study. Only 245 of the 1047 funds had a positive historical asset weighted market alpha. 802 funds had an asset weighted market alpha of Zero or below. The median asset weighted market alpha value was 0 (the largest 100 funds =81% of total value). The mean asset weighted market alpha was .10% indicating a skew to positive alpha.
