Risk-adjusted return

Definition: [crh] Often we subtract from the rate of return on an asset a rate of return from another asset that has similar riskDefinition: >. This gives an abnormal rate of return that shows how the asset performed over and above a benchmark asset with the same risk. We can also use the beta against the benchmark to calculate an alpha, which is also risk-adjusted performance. Definition: [crh] Return earned on an asset normalized for the amount of risk associated with that asset.
