Provides functions to perform the peer performance
analysis of funds' returns as described in Ardia and Boudt (2018)
PeerPerformance (Ardia and Boudt, 20xx) is an R package for the peer-performance evaluation of financial investments with
luck-correction. In particular, it implements the peer performance ratios
of Ardia and Boudt (2018) which measure the percentage of peers a focal fund outperforms and underperforms, after
correction for luck. It is useful for fund or portfolio managers to
benchmark their investments or screen a universe of new funds.
In addition, it implements the testing framework for the Sharpe and modified Sharpe ratios, described
in Ledoit and Wolf (2008)
and Ardia and Boudt (2015).
The latest stable version of
PeerPerformance is available at https://cran.r-project.org/package=PeerPerformance.
The latest development version of
PeerPerformance is available at https://github.com/ArdiaD/PeerPerformance.
