Description for case is given below :
In May 1998, the director of Research at Zeus Asset Management is reflecting on the current performance evaluation of Zeus’s mutual funds (which include an equity fund, a bond fund, a balanced fund, and an international fund) and ways to improve the measurement of performance. Zeus has become increasingly aware that absolute returns, or relative returns (returns relative to a benchmark), will not suffice as a measurement of performance and that a measurement (or a series of measurements) of risk-adjusted performance must be added. Performance evaluation is key to structuring compensation and incentive schemes in general, as well as strategic planning for the company’s future. Given Zeus’s relatively risk-averse clientele, the “correct” measurement of risk is imperative. Students are asked to compute several measures of risk-adjusted performance. Familiarity with running regression models in Excel is required; alternatively, the case can be used to pursue that objective. The case comes with an Excel spreadsheet containing the relevant data (time series of returns [net of risk-free rate] of three mutual funds and corresponding benchmark indices).
