Dealing with nested attribution

by | Feb 14, 2013

Tricia Nelson Bailey, of Waddell & Reed, and I will conduct a webinar later this month (February 26, @ 11 AM EST) on nested attribution.

What we mean by nested attribution is the case where the attribution is done down to additional levels. Typically, we see two levels: portfolio and, for example, sector, or asset class. If you want to include lower levels (e.g., subsector), you will typically run into one of two problems:

  • you get non-intuitive results
  • the subsector effects don’t add up to the sector effects.

Both can be discomforting.

We will address these challenges, and offer a solution, which we think will prove to be very helpful. To learn more, contact Chris Spaulding or Steve Sobhi.
