Portfolio Performance Measurement

David Blake

ABSTRACT

This paper surveys the techniques used for measuring and assesing
the performance of investment portfolios. It also reviews the evidence
for how effective managers are at actively managing their funds in
terms of security selection and market timing and how consistent their
performance is over time.
