Description

Function which computes the modified Sharpe ratio

Usage

1
msharpe(X, level = 0.9, na.rm = TRUE, na.neg = TRUE)

Arguments

X

Vector (of lenght T) or matrix (of size TxN) of returns. NA values are allowed.

level

Modified Value-at-Risk level. Default: level = 0.90.

na.rm

A logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation. Default na.rm = TRUE.

na.neg

A logical value indicating whether NA values should be returned if a negative modified Value-at-Risk is obtained. Default na.neg = TRUE.

Details

The modified Sharpe ratio (Favre and Galeano 2002) is one industry standard for measuring the absolute risk adjusted performance of hedge funds.

Value

Scalar or a vector (of size N) with the modified Sharpe ratios.
