Industrywide coverage of Selling Fast and Buying Slow

Inalytics’ CEO, Rick di Mascio, co-authored Selling Fast and Buying Slow: Heuristics and Trading Performance of Institutional Investors, an academic paper examining the buying and selling characteristics of institutional investors.

The paper uses anonymised data from the Inalytics Peer Group database and co-authored alongside three academics, Alex Imas from Carnegie Mellon University, Lawrence Schmidt from MIT Sloan School of Management and Klakow Akepanidtaworn from University of Chicago – Booth School of Business.

Within two weeks of its release, the paper was listed in the SSRN Top 10 downloaded papers of the week and has been viewed over 35,000 times since its publication on January 2, 2019. The paper has received critical acclaim and been presented at asset management and behavioural economics conferences around the globe. The analysis on fund manager decision making uses Inalytics Peer Group database as the basis for the study and has been highlighted in many industry articles and discussions.
