Drawing upon the experience of leading global practitioners, this book updates the readers' knowledge and skills on advanced topics within performance measurement, risk, attribution and evaluation. It builds upon existing introductory texts and develops the readers skills to the level needed to practice performance measurement in the real and increasingly complex financial world. It provides robust solutions to the challenges faced by risk and performance professionals each day. It bridges the gap between ex-post performance measurement and ex-ante performance risk measurement. Previously, these topics and practitioners have been kept separate, even though they serve the same audience. It also includes critical insight into the latest models for performance measurement and attribution. It provides analysis of: Performance measurement, Performance evaluation, Portfolio risk, Performance attribution, Value at Risk (VaR), Managing tracking error, and GIPS[registered] verification. It covers the main areas of the marketplace, including: Alternative assets, Hedge funds, Commodity futures, Life-cycle funds, Book income-orientated investments, and Transition management.
