Overview

The Sharpe ratio was developed by Nobel laureate William F. Sharpe, and is a measure for calculating risk-adjusted return of an asset. Hence, it is calculated as the mean returns earned by an asset or a portfolio in excess of the risk-free rate per unit of volatility.

 

The higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better the portfolio or fund has performed in proportion to the risk taken by it.
