Absolute Return

In finance, the term “absolute return” refers to a measure of investment performance. This measure indicates the actual gain or loss in the value of an investment portfolio or an investment fund, rather than indicating performance in relation to the performance of benchmarks (such as market indexes). This figure is shown as a percentage of invested assets.
