This Advent Software white paper provides an overview of what performance attribution is and how it works and contrasts two of the more
popular models to calculate equity attribution.
It is designed to be an introduction to the topic, not an exhaustive discussion, but it is hoped that readers will come away with a firm grasp of the fundamental principles of attribution as well as a practical understanding of how they can be used to measure performance.
Our focus is solely on equities, since fixed income attribution is a complex topic beyond the scope of this white paper.
