Does Past Performance Matter? The S&P Persistence Scorecard


Click to Print This Page

S&PInvestment professionals often consider measures of past performance and related metrics when selecting funds. So how much does past performance really matter? To help answer this important question, the S&P Persistence Scorecard, produced twice a year, tracks the consistency of top performers over consecutive annual periods. The latest Scorecard shows that very few funds manage to consistently repeat top-half or top-quartile performance. In fact, over the five years ending September 2010, only 4.1% of large-cap funds maintained a top-half ranking over five consecutive 12-month periods.
