Abstract [sv]

Investerare har under en lång tid försökt reda ut huruvida det går att slå marknaden. Vilket perspektiv som investeraren har med avseende på möjligheten att slå marknaden blir aktuellt vid val av investeringsalternativ. Ett vanligt förekommande alternativ är fonder där flöden av kapital är beroende av faktorer på makronivå. Hur en investerare väljer att placera sitt kapital är även påverkat av den upplevda risknivån som innefattar diverse faktorer. Syftet med uppsatsen var att studera hur nettoflödet av investeringsfonder korrelerade med konjunkturläget, som en faktor på makronivå, under perioden 1999 till 2017. Därtill observerades vilka faktorer och risker som påverkade investerare vid val av investeringsfond. En kvantitativ forskningsstrategi användes och två undersökningar genomfördes, en analys av historisk data samt en enkätundersökning. Resultatet visade att det inte återfanns några starka korrelationer mellan investeringsfondernas nettoflöden och konjunkturläget. Därtill påvisades att de observerade faktorerna påverkade i högre- eller lägre grad, dock var spridningen mellan faktorerna jämna. Den risk som tolererades mest var risken som enskilda företag stod inför. Sammanfattningsvis noteras att nettoflöden till fonder är en komplicerad process som sannolikt är beroende flertalet variabler. Undersökningen resulterade därutöver i en förståelse att varken risk eller diverse faktorer sticker nämnvärt ut i en investerares val av fond.

Abstract [en]

Investors have for a long time tried to find out whether the market can be beaten. What perspective the investor has with regard to the possibility of beating the market becomes relevant when choosing an investment alternative. One commo alternative is funds where capital flows are dependent on factors at amacro level. How an investor chooses to place his or her capitalis also influenced by the perceived level of risk that includes various factors. The purpose of the paper was to study how the netflow of investment funds correlated with the businesscycle,as a factor at the macrolevel,during the period 1999 to 2017. In addition, it was observed which factors and risks influenced investors in the choice of investment fund. A quantitative research strategy was used and two surveys were conducted, an analysis of historical data and a questionnaire survey. The results howed that there were no strong correlations between the investment funds' netflows and the businesscycle. In addition, it was demonstrated that the observed factors affected to a higher-or lower degree, however, the spread between the factors was even.The most tolerable risk was the risk faced by individual companies. In summary, it is noted that netflows to funds are a complicated process that is probably dependent on several variables. In addition, the paper resulted in an understanding that neither risk nor various factors stands out in an investor's choice of fund.
