How do you compare two Mutual Funds and what should be the basis for such a comparison? There is the question of returns, obviously. But higher returns can be achieved by taking on more risk. And then there’s the question of draw-downs. What were the periods of bad performance and how long did it take the asset manager to make up for those losses? How do you compare risk-adjusted returns of two funds? What if you want to compare returns to whatever benchmark index you wanted?
