Book Description
Just how talented are your investment managers?  Measuring portfolio performance requires evaluation (measuring portfolio results against benchmarks) and attribution (determining individual results of the portfolio's parts),   In this book, a professor and an asset manager show readers how to use theories, applications, and real data to understand these tools. Unlike others, Fischer and Wermers teach readers how to pick the very latest scientific theories and applications that fit their specific needs.  With material inspired by the recent financial crisis, Fischer and Wermers bring new clarity to defining investment success.
