Edited by David Spaulding, CIPM and James A. Tzitzouris, Jr., Ph.D., this compilation of articles on investment performance measurement is a “must have” for every performance measurement professional.
The field of investment performance measurement has finally arrived as a serious profession and segment of the investment industry. In te past few years we’ve seen the introduction of a formal certification program for performance measuremnt professionals, the creation of job titles such as “performance analyst” and “global head of performance,” and the expansion beyond simply calculating returns. But even with this growth, much of what is done results from articles that were published many years ago and are in many cases quite difficult to come by.
Classics in Investment Performance Measurement offers you tremendous insights into the industry’s pioneers and leading thinkers. The editors have, for the first time, brought together fundamental, foundational articles that all serious investment performance professionals should be familiar with. This text will serve both educational and reference purposes. The articles were chosen by the editors using various criteria, including original sources, creative concepts, and fundamentals.
