Learn Investment Performance is the go to resource for investment management professionals in operations, fund accounting or performance.

When I first started learning about performance, all the books and resources started with complex mathematical equations. I grew frustrated that I couldn’t find any resources to learn about investment operations, market values, portfolio accounting, and all the inputs to the return formulas. I had to learn this the hard way of years of being on the job. I hope to make this easier for the next person out there.
