Alpha is a risk (beta adjusted) measurement of the difference between a fund’s actual returns and what it might be expected to deliver based on its level of risk. Beta measures a fund’s sensitivity to market movements. Sharpe Ratio is calculated by using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. R-squared is a statistical measurement that determines the proportion of the return on a specific portfolio of securities, that can be explained by variations in the stock market, as measured by a benchmark index. Standard deviation is a statistical measure of volatility indicating the risk associated with a return series. The information ratio is a measure of the consistency of excess return.
