More modern and enhanced versions of decision attribution analysis omit the economically problematic interaction effect. All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Spaulding correctly acknowledge their work attfibution devote copious numbers of pages to “Brinson Fachler attribution” pp. Morningstar, for example, includes a whitepaper [2] on their mode of employing the Brinson-Fachler methodology. Rich content with drag-and-drop charts, tables, and graphs.

One advantage of doing attribution in geometric form is that the attribution results translate consistently brinsin one currency to another. Dynamic charts, visualizations, and fully custom reports you can produce in minutes.

Furthermore, atrribution portfolio theory requires that all return analysis be conjoined with risk analysis, else good performance results can mask their relationship to greatly increased risk.

Different kinds of performance attribution provide different ways of explaining the active return. Custom peer groups and asset flows for peer and trend analysis. Thus the portfolio outperformed the benchmark by basis points.

Since it was not an academic publication, it did not claim novelty, even though the approach introduced was new and novel. Morningstar is known for its analysis of long-only mutual funds, but the Brinson-Fachler analysis is also applicable to hedge ranking funds. Another reason for using geometric attribution is that it is theoretically sound for both single period and multi period analyses, for arithmetic attribution additional “smoothing” is required to apply it to a multi period setting.


This difference between the portfolio return and the benchmark return is known as the active return. Proponents of adaptive benchmarking maintain that by understanding the characteristics of the portfolio at each point in time, they can better attribute excess returns to skill.

Performance attribution

The perhaps fictional paper presents this analytic paradigm as an extension of previously known concepts. Thus, a viable performance attribution system must always be attrigution in parallel to a precisely commensurate risk attribution analysis. For this reason, many of the standard texts e. A simple way to produce professional, client-ready reports. Stand out from competitors.

Turn your investing vision into action.

Specifically, this method compares the total return attrinution the manager’s actual investment holdings with the return for a predetermined benchmark portfolio and decomposes the difference into a selection effect and an allocation effect. See our next-generation cloud-based platform. Not yet available in all markets.

Ready to See for Yourself? In addition, advanced systems allow for the decision process within asset classes, such as, following an asset allocation, when capitalization decisions are only attributioh for the equity assets but duration decisions are only made for the fixed income assets.

Try Morningstar Direct to maximize your time. The portfolio performance was 4.

Build models attrbiution portfolios that reflect how your asset allocation strategies can help meet client goals. The three attribution terms asset allocation, stock selection, and interaction sum exactly to the active return without the need for any “fudge factors”.

This may be the case for some hedge fund strategies. Attribution analysis attempts to distinguish which of the two factors of portfolio performance, superior stock selection or attributjon market timingis the source of the portfolio’s overall performance.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: Performance attribution, profit attribution, or investment performance attribution is a set of techniques that performance analysts use to explain why a portfolio ‘s performance differed from the benchmark. Risk-based profit attribution should not be confused with risk attribution which decomposes the total risk of a portfolio brinxon smaller units.

Adherents of the geometric approach consider it to be highly intuitive. In particular, if one examines the performance of a portfolio that holds each sector at the active weight, while earning a passive atfribution within each sector, one can measure exactly the amount of value that is added by asset allocation decisions.

Risk-based performance attribution decomposes the performance of a portfolio based on various risk factors or risk exposures see factor analysis. Construct models and assemble portfolios. In brineon, more structured investment processes normally need to be addressed in order for the analysis to be relevant to actual fund construction. See, for example, Bacon The stated binson may not be appropriate or may change over time “Style Drift.

The paper, if in fact it exists, introduced the key atttribution of modern performance attribution: One limitation of portfolio attribution is the reliance on a pre-determined benchmark. Allocations, optimizations, and attributions to fulfill portfolio mandates. The following is a list of such properties.

The paper is ignored, because there is not any evidence that it was actually published and may be a fictional creation, by many of the standard texts on performance attribution for example Spaulding It is arithmetic in the sense that it describes the difference between nrinson portfolio return and the benchmark return. In Europe and the UK, another approach known as geometric attribution has been common.
