In the spirit of lighter reading into Xmas season, this week's blog by Jack Lowenstein here at Morphic looks at a recent academic publication that examines if there is a link between the cars that Fund Managers chose and the risks they take in their fund.

And here is the rub: it turns out that the extra risk taken doesn't pay off. Well, except for the Fund Manager who can afford the sports car.
