TotalReturn:

'Total return is the amount of value an investor earns from a security over a specific period, typically one year, when all distributions are reinvested. Total return is expressed as a percentage of the amount invested. For example, a total return of 20% means the security increased by 20% of its original value due to a price increase, distribution of dividends (if a stock), coupons (if a bond) or capital gains (if a fund). Total return is a strong measure of an investment’s overall performance.'

Applying this definition to our asset in some examples:
  • The total return, or increase in value over 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is 21.1%, which is lower, thus worse compared to the benchmark SPY (59.9%) in the same period.
  • During the last 3 years, the total return, or increase in value is 21.4%, which is lower, thus worse than the value of 34.2% from the benchmark.

CAGR:

'Compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is a business and investing specific term for the geometric progression ratio that provides a constant rate of return over the time period. CAGR is not an accounting term, but it is often used to describe some element of the business, for example revenue, units delivered, registered users, etc. CAGR dampens the effect of volatility of periodic returns that can render arithmetic means irrelevant. It is particularly useful to compare growth rates from various data sets of common domain such as revenue growth of companies in the same industry.'

Applying this definition to our asset in some examples:
  • Looking at the annual return (CAGR) of 4.3% in the last 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF, we see it is relatively lower, thus worse in comparison to the benchmark SPY (9.8%)
  • Compared with SPY (10.3%) in the period of the last 3 years, the annual return (CAGR) of 7.6% is lower, thus worse.

Volatility:

'Volatility is a rate at which the price of a security increases or decreases for a given set of returns. Volatility is measured by calculating the standard deviation of the annualized returns over a given period of time. It shows the range to which the price of a security may increase or decrease. Volatility measures the risk of a security. It is used in option pricing formula to gauge the fluctuations in the returns of the underlying assets. Volatility indicates the pricing behavior of the security and helps estimate the fluctuations that may happen in a short period of time.'

Using this definition on our asset we see for example:
  • Looking at the historical 30 days volatility of 15.5% in the last 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF, we see it is relatively lower, thus better in comparison to the benchmark SPY (18.7%)
  • Compared with SPY (21.5%) in the period of the last 3 years, the 30 days standard deviation of 15.3% is smaller, thus better.

DownVol:

'Risk measures typically quantify the downside risk, whereas the standard deviation (an example of a deviation risk measure) measures both the upside and downside risk. Specifically, downside risk in our definition is the semi-deviation, that is the standard deviation of all negative returns.'

Using this definition on our asset we see for example:
  • Compared with the benchmark SPY (13.6%) in the period of the last 5 years, the downside deviation of 11.1% of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is lower, thus better.
  • Looking at downside risk in of 11% in the period of the last 3 years, we see it is relatively lower, thus better in comparison to SPY (15.7%).

Sharpe:

'The Sharpe ratio is the measure of risk-adjusted return of a financial portfolio. Sharpe ratio is a measure of excess portfolio return over the risk-free rate relative to its standard deviation. Normally, the 90-day Treasury bill rate is taken as the proxy for risk-free rate. A portfolio with a higher Sharpe ratio is considered superior relative to its peers. The measure was named after William F Sharpe, a Nobel laureate and professor of finance, emeritus at Stanford University.'

Using this definition on our asset we see for example:
  • The Sharpe Ratio over 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is 0.12, which is smaller, thus worse compared to the benchmark SPY (0.39) in the same period.
  • Compared with SPY (0.36) in the period of the last 3 years, the Sharpe Ratio of 0.33 is lower, thus worse.

Sortino:

'The Sortino ratio improves upon the Sharpe ratio by isolating downside volatility from total volatility by dividing excess return by the downside deviation. The Sortino ratio is a variation of the Sharpe ratio that differentiates harmful volatility from total overall volatility by using the asset's standard deviation of negative asset returns, called downside deviation. The Sortino ratio takes the asset's return and subtracts the risk-free rate, and then divides that amount by the asset's downside deviation. The ratio was named after Frank A. Sortino.'

Applying this definition to our asset in some examples:
  • Looking at the ratio of annual return and downside deviation of 0.17 in the last 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF, we see it is relatively lower, thus worse in comparison to the benchmark SPY (0.54)
  • Compared with SPY (0.5) in the period of the last 3 years, the excess return divided by the downside deviation of 0.47 is lower, thus worse.

Ulcer:

'Ulcer Index is a method for measuring investment risk that addresses the real concerns of investors, unlike the widely used standard deviation of return. UI is a measure of the depth and duration of drawdowns in prices from earlier highs. Using Ulcer Index instead of standard deviation can lead to very different conclusions about investment risk and risk-adjusted return, especially when evaluating strategies that seek to avoid major declines in portfolio value (market timing, dynamic asset allocation, hedge funds, etc.). The Ulcer Index was originally developed in 1987. Since then, it has been widely recognized and adopted by the investment community. According to Nelson Freeburg, editor of Formula Research, Ulcer Index is “perhaps the most fully realized statistical portrait of risk there is.'

Applying this definition to our asset in some examples:
  • Looking at the Downside risk index of 11 in the last 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF, we see it is relatively larger, thus worse in comparison to the benchmark SPY (5.81 )
  • Looking at Downside risk index in of 11 in the period of the last 3 years, we see it is relatively greater, thus worse in comparison to SPY (6.86 ).

MaxDD:

'Maximum drawdown measures the loss in any losing period during a fund’s investment record. It is defined as the percent retrenchment from a fund’s peak value to the fund’s valley value. The drawdown is in effect from the time the fund’s retrenchment begins until a new fund high is reached. The maximum drawdown encompasses both the period from the fund’s peak to the fund’s valley (length), and the time from the fund’s valley to a new fund high (recovery). It measures the largest percentage drawdown that has occurred in any fund’s data record.'

Which means for our asset as example:
  • The maximum reduction from previous high over 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is -23.6 days, which is greater, thus better compared to the benchmark SPY (-33.7 days) in the same period.
  • Compared with SPY (-33.7 days) in the period of the last 3 years, the maximum DrawDown of -23.6 days is larger, thus better.

MaxDuration:

'The Drawdown Duration is the length of any peak to peak period, or the time between new equity highs. The Max Drawdown Duration is the worst (the maximum/longest) amount of time an investment has seen between peaks (equity highs) in days.'

Using this definition on our asset we see for example:
  • Compared with the benchmark SPY (187 days) in the period of the last 5 years, the maximum days below previous high of 439 days of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is greater, thus worse.
  • During the last 3 years, the maximum days under water is 383 days, which is larger, thus worse than the value of 139 days from the benchmark.

AveDuration:

'The Drawdown Duration is the length of any peak to peak period, or the time between new equity highs. The Avg Drawdown Duration is the average amount of time an investment has seen between peaks (equity highs), or in other terms the average of time under water of all drawdowns. So in contrast to the Maximum duration it does not measure only one drawdown event but calculates the average of all.'

Which means for our asset as example:
  • The average days under water over 5 years of XTRACKERS MSCI SOUTH KOREA HEDGED EQUITY ETF is 163 days, which is higher, thus worse compared to the benchmark SPY (43 days) in the same period.
  • Compared with SPY (39 days) in the period of the last 3 years, the average days below previous high of 129 days is larger, thus worse.
