Abstract. We design incentives schemes for portfolio managers that filter out suboptimal portfolio managers: only the best portfolio managers, in terms of expected payoffs, agree to participate in the single-period investment. The results hold in general financial markets, where uninformed investors face managers of different capabilities, and can only observe their one-shot realized returns. Policy implications are derived accordingly.
