Title:

Activism Management

Speaker:

Dr Marco Elia - QUT

Abstract:

Hedge funds have incentives to manage their reported returns. We provide evidence suggesting that some activist hedge funds inflate their reported returns by initiating campaigns in target firms just before the end of the quarter. This heightened activity cannot be explained by increased news flow at the end of the quarter. This behavior is stronger for hedge funds that have higher incentives to improve their returns just before the end of the reporting period.
