Summary

This authoritative book enables readers to evaluate the various performance and risk attributes of mutual funds, while also serving as a comprehensive resource for students, academics, and general investors alike. Avoiding the less useful descriptive approach to fund selection, this book employs a balanced approach including both technique and application. The chapters combine clear summaries of existing research with practical guidelines for mutual fund analysis.
