Investment Performance Measurement Over the past two decades, the importance of measuring, presenting, and evaluating investment performance results has dramatically increased. With the growth of capital market data services, the development of quantitative analytical techniques, and the widespread acceptance of Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®), this discipline has emerged as a central component of effective asset management and, thanks in part to the Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM) program, has become a recognized area of specialization for investment professionals. That's why Investment Performance Measurement: Evaluating and Presenting Results—the second essential title in the CFA Institute Investment Perspectives series—has been created. CFA Institute has a long tradition of publishing content from industry thought leaders, and now this new collection offers unparalleled guidance to those working in the rapidly evolving field of investment management. Drawing from the Research Foundation of CFA Institute, the Financial Analysts Journal, CFA Institute Conference Proceedings Quarterly, CFA Magazine, and the CIPM curriculum, this reliable resource taps into the vast store of knowledge of some of today's most prominent thought leaders—from industry professionals to respected academics—who have focused on investment performance evaluation for a majority of their careers. Divided into five comprehensive parts, this timely volume opens with an extensive overview of performance measurement, attribution, and appraisal. Here, you'll become familiar with everything from the algebra of time-weighted and money-weighted rates of return to the objectives and techniques of performance appraisal. After this informative introduction, Investment Performance Measurement moves on to: Provide a solid understanding of the theoretical grounds for benchmarking and the trade-offs encountered during practice in Part II: Performance Measurement Describe the different aspects of attribution analysis as well as the determinants of portfolio performance in Part III: Performance Attribution Address everything from hedge fund risks and returns to fund management changes and equity style shifts in Part IV: Performance Appraisal Recount the history and explain the provisions of the GIPS standards—with attention paid to the many practical issues that arise in the course of its implementation—in Part V: Global Investment Performance Standards Filled with invaluable insights from more than fifty experienced contributors, this practical guide will enhance your understanding of investment performance measurement and put you in a better position to present and evaluate results in the most effective way possible.

"This is one of the best books dealing with performance measurement and performance presentation, and one that almost any interested investor can understand. ÑMichael Caccese, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary, AIMR. Investors who are blinded by impressive short-term return figures, especially in todayÕs go-go markets, may one day see a portfolio that is wholly inappropriate to their situations and circumstances. Measuring Investment Performance is the new bible for measuring performance in the money management industry. Working under the assumption that statistics used to measure performance should be appropriate, consistent, bias-free, and standardized, financial management consultant David Spaulding delivers an insightful (and often witty) resource for guaranteeing that you are acting appropriately and with the greatest chance of success as a financial advisor or, if you are an investor, that you or your company are in the correct investment every time. Highlights include ways to assess a managerÕs style and verify that he or she is sticking to it, in-depth explanations of different types of risk and risk-based performance assessments, a comprehensive look at the SEC with appendixes that contain complete texts of notable SEC No-Action letters, an overview of the main performance measurement (BAI and ICAA) and reporting (AIMR and IMCA) standards, and case histories of actual companies, and how specific rulings and sanctions have clarified what investors can or canÕt be told when it comes to performance measurement. Are you a money manager who needs complete information on measurement and reporting standards, or an investor or investment professional curious about how you can fairly and accurately compare investments with different approaches and goals? Measuring Investment Performance is the one book you need to demystify and clarify this rapidly-changing subject!

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In the world of investment today, countless decisions are being taken in order to meet financial aims and fulfill expectations people have for the future. Day by day, tremendous amounts of information zigzag across the entire planet, from continent to continent, between people and places, rushing through all time zones at the speed of light. Managers, investors as well as private households, employees, foundations and many more seek to acquire essential data concerning their financial positions. Since investing has gained significantly in importance over time, the quality of this data has increasingly received a substantial role. Many crucial subjects depend on the reliability and the trustworthiness of information about investments. Subjects which sooner or later concern everybody s lives in the developed societies such as pensions funding, future education financing or start-up business, plans just to name a few. Therefore, in the new environment known as the Information Society , people have to be able to recognize the information that is relevant to them. They have to be able to distinguish it from misleading, sometimes even fraudulent data, which unfortunately continues circulating and incessantly creates considerable economical damage. The qualitative requirements to be met by the provided data are quite straightforward and obvious, yet in nature difficult to reach. However, the success and the attractiveness of any kind of investment opportunity increasingly depends on the quality grade of the information exchange. The urgent demand for fulfilling the requirements for investments led to the creation of a completely new standard: the Global Investment Performance Standard (GIPS). These standards, and their theoretical basis as well as their surroundings will form the core of this thesis. In order not to be pushed immediately into a complete unknown environment, the structure of this thesis is organized in layers, starting from more general topics and developing into more detail thereafter. Part I covers the basic part about performance. It will then guide to the thematical location of the subject Performance Presentation , and will briefly present a few major items, which shall help to quickly access more detailed chapters. Part II will cover the technical clockwork of performance measurement. In a step-by-step process, the different components, their meaning and their calculation will be introduced. They [...]

For many years asset management was considered to be a marginal activity, but today, it is central to the development of financial industry throughout the world. Asset management's transition from an "art and craft" to an industry has inevitably called integrated business models into question, favouring specialisation strategies based on cost optimisation and learning curve objectives. This book connects each of these major categories of techniques and practices to the unifying and seminal conceptual developments of modern portfolio theory. In these bear market times, performance evaluation of portfolio managers is of central focus. This book will be one of very few on the market and is by a respected member of the profession. Allows the professionals, whether managers or investors, to take a step back and clearly separate true innovations from mere improvements to well-known, existing techniques Puts into context the importance of innovations with regard to the fundamental portfolio management questions, which are the evolution of the investment management process, risk analysis and performance measurement Takes the explicit or implicit assumptions contained in the promoted tools into account and, by so doing, evaluate the inherent interpretative or practical limits
