Peer Group Analysis For Hedge Funds And Fund Of Funds

The traditional Peer Group Analysis based on the Box-and-Whisker diagrams has been known for years. Risk Shell offers you a more advanced concept of Multi-statistic Peer Group Analysis, first introduced by ABC Quant in 2005 specifically for hedge fund assessment. In contrast with the box plots, it delivers a deeper insight into manager risk profiles by comparing selected assets against their peers across multiple statistics simultaneously.
