Monetary policy can interfere with active management at central banks, resulting in parts of the investments being frozen. To execute a proper performance attribution, the reduced decision power needs to be taken into account. In this article, we present a method to account for frozen investments in the performance attribution. We exemplify this method using relevant performance attribution models for reserve management portfolios. The selected models are: the Brinson model; the Karnosky and Singer model, adjusted to take into account actual hedging costs; and
the Campisi and Van Breukelen fixed-income models, because they present two alternative views on how managers allocate within the fixed-income space. The van Breukelen model is extended to show the results of spread decisions.
