Both programs calculate Internal Rate of Return for portfolios or portfolio groups.
Easy ROR Pro adds GIPS®
Time-Weighted calculation methods (necessary for GIPS-compliance).
Time-Weighted methods neutralize the effects of cash flows, thus measuring the
performance of the money manager rather than the investor. Easy ROR Pro
also adds Benchmarking with indexes (or custom blended indexes) which Easy ROR Pro automatically downloads. Easy ROR
Pro also calculates Volatility, Beta, Sharpe Ratio, and other measures of Risk/Reward, and adds other features for professional use, like customized report headers, client information, etc. Easy ROR and Easy ROR
Pro require identical data input.
Q What is GIPS? Is Easy ROR Pro GIPS-compliant?
(Global Investment Performance Standards) is the global standard for
performance reporting administered by the CFA Institute. If you're a professional, offering GIPS compliance
is becoming increasingly important and will gain you a significant competitive
advantage; in fact,
prospective clients will likely expect you to be GIPS-compliant in the
near future. Calculations using GIPS methodology
(provided by Easy ROR Pro) are required for such compliance. Software programs such as Easy ROR Pro cannot claim
"GIPS compliance", only firms with assets under management can. Easy ROR Pro can only help you claim GIPS compliance if you use it
correctly in accordance with GIPS (links to GIPS guidelines are provided in the
program). Full GIPS compliance involves many requirements of which calculation methodology is only one. See our
Resources page for links
to learn more about GIPS.
Q What makes Easy ROR Pro better than other performance calculators?
Easy ROR Pro provides all Time-Weighted calculation methods required by GIPS (not just one) and many others which are recommended by GIPS. It uses daily-weighted methods, not outdated mid-point methods, and meets the
2011 standards. Easy ROR Pro only requires
portfolio balances, deposits and withdrawals to make these vital calculations; it does not require any information regarding
internal portfolio activity such as positions, trades, dividends, etc.
