PeerPerformance

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 (2016) 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).
