We present the first broad overview of the
factors determining corporate bond fund success and failure in terms of
performance and survival. We show that the main determinant of survival
is size. Performance matters only for small funds while large funds
survive unconditionally, consistent with maintaining fee revenues. We
neither find persistence in performance nor diseconomies of scale. This
is due to advantages of larger funds in corporate bond trading. Other
fund and family characteristics are unrelated to performance and
survival, contrasting previous finings in equity funds. Thus, there are
similarities but also important differences between the factors
determining success and failure on the corporate bond and equity fund
