What Our Clients Say
Groundbreaking B-school Research
In early 2012, gabbegroup played a central role in promoting
two major studies from the Indiana University Kelley School
Herman Aguinis, professor of organizational behavior
and human resources, and a colleague found that individual
performance unfolds not on a bell curve, but on a
“power law” distribution, with a few elite performers driving
most output and an equally small group tied to damaging activity.
Our efforts resulted in interviews/placements with NPR, The
Chicago Tribune, The Globe & Mail, HR Magazine, Inc.
and Inside Higher Ed. The paper appears in the Spring issue of Personnel Psychology.
In a forthcoming study in The
Journal of Finance, professors Veronika Krepeley Pool and
Utpal Bhattacharya found that mutual fund families routinely
and purposely use the capital in affiliated funds of mutual
funds (AFoMFs) as “insurance pools” to offset or prevent cash
shortfalls in other funds in the family. Further, this practice,
which sacrifices performances by the AFoMF for the benefit
of the fund company, is not outlined in prospectuses and may
be in direct conflict with AFoMF shareholder interest. Our
efforts resulted in interviews/placements with MarketWatch,
Smart Money, Money, Bloomberg News, and Money Management Executive.
