The main objective of this study is to identify the impact of portfolio composition on the net flow of mutual funds in the Brazilian market. The central hypothesis is that, during periods of crisis, the exacerbation of information asymmetry on asset quality causes a negative impact on net flows of funds with a higher exposure to assets with private credit risk (mainly Certificates of Deposits – CDs). To test this hypothesis, I use panel data regression analysis using monthly data on fixed income and referenced, both dedicated and non-dedicated, funds between 2007 and 2010. In a further analysis, I segregate CDs issued by large and small-medium banks. Among non-dedicated funds, I find that CDs (in general) cause a negative impact on the net flows of referenced funds, while CDs from small-medium banks negatively impacts fixed income funds. For dedicated funds, in which the investor is presumed to exert more power on asset management, I find no significant relationship between credit risk exposure and net flows
