ProIndex’s Beta Assignment | Homework For You

1. Using the data in the “Thompson Asset Management”, prepare a short report evaluating the performance of the ProIndex fund during years 2009-2013. Your evaluation should be based on a comparison with the S&P 500 index. You should use some (but, most likely, not all) of the performance measures in Exhibit 4. Comment on which performance measure(s), in your opinion, is the most appropriate for different types of investors (for example, you could take two examples: a university endowment with a diversified portfolio managed by multiple firms; and an individual who is interested in entrusting their entire portfolio to TAM.)Homework For You
