The selected data are monthly panel data, which are more informative than the previous annual point-in-time data. The five indicators of fund managers of these funds: gender, education, length of time in the profession of fund manager (years in the profession), length of time managing existing funds, and number of funds under management are used as explanatory variables, the number of years of fund establishment, the size of the fund itself, the number of funds owned by the fund company, and the overall size of the fund company are used as control variables, and the Sharpe index of the fund is used as the explanatory variable, in bull market, bear market, shock, and trade war periods were modeled separately with random effects and explained for comparison. The effect of educational background variable on fund performance reflects that good fund managers need to effectively combine theory with practical investment experience. Fund management companies should pay attention to the development of female fund managers and provide more employment opportunities for female fund managers, while focusing on building fund manager teams and establishing effective incentive mechanisms.
