Performance Attribution

Compute and analyze performance attribution using the Brinson model

Performance attribution supports methods for single periods over relatively short time spans (monthly) and multiple periods compounded over longer time spans (quarterly or a yearly). Use brinsonAttribution to create a brinsonAttribution object. Use the brinsonAttribution object with the categoryAttribution, categoryReturns, categoryWeights, totalAttribution, summary, categoryReturnsChart, categoryWeightsChart, and attributionsChart functions.
