The Rise of Mutual Funds

Matthew P. Fink

Oxford University Press

The eighteen-year bull market of 1982-2000, combined with new fund products and distribution systems and legislation providing incentives for individual retirement savings, propelled mutual funds into becoming the largest financial industry in the world, surpassing U.S. banking institutions. These developments led to proposals to subject mutual funds to bank-type regulation and to move from direct regulation of mutual funds by the SEC to self-regulation by the industry itself. Fortunately for both fund shareholders and the industry, neither type of proposal was adopted.

Keywords:   bull market, bank-type regulation, self-regulation, retirement savings
