A Universal Performance Measure Con Keating

  title={A Universal Performance Measure Con Keating},
  author={William F. Shadwick},

We propose and examine a new performance measure in the spirit of the downside, lower partial moment and gain-loss literatures. We indicate how this may be applied across a broad range of problems in financial analysis. The performance measure captures all of the higher moments of the returns distribution. The performance measure is applied to a range of hedge fund style or strategy indices. * Corresponding Author: Con Keating E-mail: keating@risk.demon.co.uk We should like to thank Jim…
