Practical portfolio performance measurement and attribution

£47.50

Product description

Practical Performance Measurement and Attribution provides a clear introduction to the subject of performance measurement. Focusing more on the practical use and calculation of performance returns rather than the academic background it will help readers gain a clear understanding of the role and implications of performance measurement in today's financial environment. "Carl's book is a 'must have' resource - the complete A to Z of the increasingly complex field of performance measurement." Glenn Solomon, Global Head of Institutional Clients, Investment Reporting & Performance, BNP Paribas Securities Services "Internationally renowned authority Carl Bacon has provided what one would expect - an exceptionally well written and practical resource that every investment performance measurement professional should own." David Spaulding, President, The Spaulding Group "Carl Bacon is one of the most knowledgeable professionals I know on the subject of Performance Measurement. He has been a pioneer, leader, and teacher at the forefront of developments in global investment performance standards, performance attribution technique, and risk measurement. I am very pleased he has written this timely and useful book as a complete reference and explanation update on these important subjects." James Hollis, Managing Director, Cutter Associates "Though the subject matter is complex, Carl strikes the right balance between theory and reality. This book should have a permanent spot on the desk of every performance practitioner. I will refer to it often." Karyn Vincent, CFA, Vincent Performance Services LLC "Whether you are a provider or a user of Performance Analysis, this book is well structured, informative and truly a practical guide in every sense." Gary Hilldrup, Global Head Performance, Risk & Client Reporting, Fortis Investments Performance measurement is a key function in an asset management firm and deserves better than to be grouped with the back office. Performance measurers provide real added value, with feedback into the investment decision process and analysis of structural issues. Since their role is to understand in full and communicate the sources of return within portfolios, they are often the only independent source equipped to understand the performance of all the portfolios and investment strategies operating within the asset management firm. This book provides an introduction to the subject of performance measurement and a useful reference for all the available methodologies. There have been significant developments in the areas of performance attribution and presentation standards recently, which deserve practical coverage.
