Investment Performance Metrics
|Compute expected lower partial moments for normal asset returns|
|Compute expected maximum drawdown for Brownian motion|
|Calculate information ratio for one or more assets|
|Compute sample lower partial moments of data|
|Compute maximum drawdown for one or more price series|
|Compute risk-adjusted alphas and returns for one or more assets|
|Compute Sharpe ratio for one or more assets|
Examples and How To
- Performance Metrics Illustration
The functions for investment performance metrics are illustrated using three financial time series objects and associated performance data.
- Using the Sharpe Ratio
Use the Sharpe ratio to calculate the ratio of an asset's excess return divided by the asset's standard deviation of returns.
- Using the Information Ratio
Use the information ratio to calculate the ratio of relative return to relative risk.
- Using Tracking Error
Use tracking error to measure the variation of a portfolio's return relative to its benchmark index.
- Using Risk-Adjusted Return
Use the risk-adjusted return to shift the risk of a portfolio to match the risk of a market portfolio or fund.
- Using Sample and Expected Lower Partial Moments
Use sample and expected lower partial moments to model moments of asset returns that fall below a minimum acceptable level of return.
- Using Maximum and Expected Maximum Drawdown
Use maximum drawdown to calculate drop from maximum to minimum return over a period of time and expected maximum drawdown of a linear Brownian motion with drift.
