    This thesis comprises of three essays on mutual fund governance and corporate governance. The first essay (Kempf, Puetz, and Sonnenburg, 2013, “The Impact of Duality on Managerial Decisions and Performance: Evidence from the Mutual Fund Industry”) investigates the consequences of manager duality in the U.S. mutual fund industry, i.e., a sole leadership structure where the manager also acts as the chairman of the board. The second essay (Martin and Sonnenburg, 2015, “Managerial Ownership Changes and Mutual Fund Performance”) analyses the relationship between managerial ownership changes and changes in future risk-adjusted fund performance for a sample of U.S. equity mutual funds. The third essay (Limbach and Sonnenburg, 2015, “CEO Fitness and Firm Value”) examines the role of physical fitness as an important managerial characteristic relevant for hiring decisions of the board of directors using a panel of S&P 1500 companies.
