CFA Practice Question

Studies suggest that professional portfolio managers do not beat the market on a risk-adjusted basis because ______
A. their ability to analyze individual stocks is not superior most of the time.
B. transaction costs and research expenses offset much of the gains from timing and analysis.
C. of the restrictions placed upon them by risk-averse shareholders.
Explanation: The most recent studies show that analysts appear to have superior timing and analysis ability, but they cannot compensate for the higher cost of doing the analysis. The risk aversion of the client should be irrelevant to the performance on a risk-adjusted basis.
