Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-0.96
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
0.99
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-0
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
6.76
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
3.8
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-0.28
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.

David Keetley01/09/2013David joined Polar Capital in October 2010 to establish the Global Convertibles team and is co-manager of the ALVA Global Convertible Fund and the Global Convertible Fund. He has 26 years’ experience in trading and managing convertible bond portfolios. David began his career at Salomon Brothers International in London and New York. In 1987 he joined BNP-Baii to become a convertible bond portfolio manager. At the time Baii was widely regarded at the leading convertible investment house in London. In 1996, after nine years at Baii, he moved to take a more senior role at Schroders within the convertible bond sales, trading & origination team. Following the takeover in 2000 of Schroder Investment Bank by Citigroup, he was asked to co-form the Citi/Schroder convertible hedge team, which as a part of the wider Citi CB team became the No.1 ranked convertible origination and trading team in London. In 2002 he returned to the buy-side and until 2004 managed the Zelengora Capital (Paloma) European convertible bond portfolio. That same year he established and managed the ORN Capital convertible bond fund. In 2006 he joined New York-based hedge fund Vicis Capital to establish and manage their international convertible portfolio and develop their London business. From August 2007, David led Vicis Capital (UK) as co-CEO. At its peak, Vicis’ AUM was $5.8bn. David is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment and holds a Civil Engineering Honours degree.

Stephen has more than 25 years’ experience in trading and managing convertible bond and equity portfolios. Prior to moving into convertible bond trading, he was a research analyst at Tucker Anthony. In 1993 he became a partner in Forum Capital Markets, eventually joining Paine Webber in 1994 where he went on to manage their convertible department until 1998. He was a senior member of the convertible sales team at Morgan Stanley before establishing and managing Valmiki Capital Management in 2005. The following year, he moved to Moore Capital where he, as a member of a three-person team, managed a $1bn global long/short equity portfolio before joining Vicis Capital to manage the US convertible bond portfolio in 2008.
