Morningstar study: Do fund managers invest their own money in the funds they manage?

Another interesting article from

Yep, those fund managers won't invest their own money into the funds they manage. And that's taking into consideration life-cycle funds ( suppose, those managers are very young and they happen to manage the fund designed for people about to retire) and state-specific bond funds.
I can think of only 2 reasons: either they have an access to much better investment options (such us private equity) than the people investing in their funds, or they know something about the funds they manage the rest of the investing public don't know.
I won't eat at a restaurant where its chef doesn't want to eat its famous entree.
