Performance measurement for alternative investments

Publication date: 2015
Author(s): Peterson, Timothy F.


Despite enormous growth in alternative investment, performance measurement practices in this area are rough around the edges.  Performance analysts tasked with measuring and reporting the returns of alternative assets face issues regarding which return method to use, leverage that creates negative denominators in the return calculation, a host of valuation concerns, and challenges associated with benchmarking these unique strategies.

Performance Measurement for Alternative Investments is the first of its kind to explain how to overcome these major hurdles, and seeks to help unite two worlds that heretofore have been kept fairly well apart:  that of the performance analyst seeking to communicate results to stakeholders, and that of the portfolio manager responsible for investment decision making.
