  2. Benchmark

A reference parameter is used to compare the performance of an investment strategy or of a portfolio of assets. It measures the market’s performance and volatility and reflects whether the portfolio’s management team has outperformed or not. For example, if a portfolio contains a varied selection of Swiss equities, the benchmark might be the SMI, which is Switzerland’s broad index of the twenty most important equities in the Swiss Performance Index.
