1.0 Introduction Portfolio performance evaluation is the process of evaluating the performance of multiple investment portfolios. You can also know the comparison between the return on the investment portfolio and the return earned on the portfolio benchmark. Portfolio performance evaluation includes two functions, including performance evaluation and performance evaluation. Performance evaluation measures the total return of the investment portfolio during the investment period. In contrast, portfolio evaluation involves determining whether the performance of a particular portfolio is relative or below the portfolio benchmark. (MBA Knowledge Base, 2010) 2.0 Data Computation for 20 unit/mutual funds The first step in evaluating portfolio performance is that we must use the following formula to calculate the daily return of a 20-unit trust fund (preferably a positive average return): R jt = NAV jt NAV jt 1 NAV jt 1 Rjt: return of unit trust (or mutual fund) j at time t NAVjt: Average (of buy and sell) Net Asset value of unit trust fund j at time t NAVjt-1: Average (of buy and sell) Net Asset value of unit trust fund j at time t-1 (1 period before) After calculating the daily return, we must use the following formula to calculate the standard deviation, average return, negative equity return and beta of each unit trust. Average returnof unit trust J : R j = R jt n Definition : The average return is the simple mathematical average of a series of returns generated over a period of time. Formula: 1
R jt R J ¿ 2 ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ Standard deviationreturn of unit trust J : σ = ¿ Definition: Standard deviation is used to measure the dispersion of the data set relative to the average. Formula: Cov ij = i = 1 n [ R i E ( r I ) ] [ R j E ( R j ) ]/ n Definition: Covariance measures the directional relationship between two asset returns. Positive covariance means that asset returns move together, while negative covariance means that they move in reverse.
