Like its sister book, Managing Financial Risk (which deals with market
risk), this book evolved from a set of lecture notes. (My colleagues at
Rutter Associates and I have been teaching classes on credit portfolio management
to bankers and regulators for almost four years now.) When lecture
notes get mature enough that they start curling up on the edges, the
instructor is faced with a choice—either throw them out or turn them into
a book. I chose the latter.

management software in the world today. Some people think of P6 as simply a
tool for scheduling projects, such as Microsoft Project, but on steroids. But while

involving tens of thousands of workers, machines, and materials.

In this chapter we turn to various strategies that bond portfolio managers can pursue, making a distinction between passive and active strategies. A passive investment strategy takes market prices of securities as fairly set. Rather than attempting to beat the market by exploiting superior information or insight, passive managers act to maintain an appropriate risk–return balance given market opportunities.
How can we evaluate the performance of a portfolio manager? It turns out that even average portfolio return is not as straightforward to measure as it might seem. In addition, adjusting average returns for risk presents a host of other problems. In this chapter, we begin with the measurement of portfolio returns. From there we move on to conventional approaches to risk adjustment. We identify the problems with these approaches when applied in various situations.
