The art of the Samurai Benchmark


The art of samurai benchmarks” is our latest article as published in Financial Advisor Magazine.

Are your benchmarks in order? This article covers rules to select and apply appropriate indices for your investments.


Beyond the S&P500

It is easy to forget that the choice of benchmark plays an important role in calculating risk-adjusted performance metrics such as alpha, beta, the information ratio, up/down capture ratios and more.

The S&P500 index (a benchmark for US large cap equity) is the industry-wide default benchmark, but it may not be appropriate for your investments and portfolios. For example, you may prefer a total market index, or a specialized index.

In Portfolio Lab, you can change the index to be used as a benchmark for these ratio calculations.


In the Backtest/Stats view, click on the edit icon (pencil) at the right of the benchmark name, to assign an index of your choice, as show in the red circle above.
