3 After-tax Accumulations & Returns for Taxable Accounts 3M232
3.1 Simple Tax Environments 3M232 3.1.1-3.1.3 只有 incremental gains are taxed
tax an investment’s annual return at a single tax rate, regardless of its form, on a periodic basis,
usually annually(理解记忆: as opposed to deferred taxes that are postponed until some future
3.1.1 Returns-based Taxes: Accrual Taxes on Interest & Dividends 3M233

Equation 1: Future Value Interest Factor: FVIFi = [1 + r(1 – ti)]n 

r = pretax return; ti = tax rate applicable to investment income;
Example 2: Accrual Taxs 3M234 (FVIFi)
Proportion of potential investment gains consumed by taxes = 计税与不计税的投资
accumulation 之差 / 不计税投资 accumulation(扣除本金)
3.1.2 Returns-Based Taxes: Deferred Capital Gains: 3M234 deferred until realized.
Equation (2a) : FVIFcg = (1 + r)n – [(1 + r)n – 1]tcg  
Equation (2b) : FVIFcg = (1 + r)n(1 – tcg) + tcg  a 式变型式
Example 3: Deferred Capital Gains: 3M236
3.1.3 Cost Basis 3M237 差价税
Cost basis: amount that was paid to acquire an asset. a capital gain= selling price - cost basis.
Equation (3a) : FVIFcgb = (1 + r)n(1 – tcg) + tcg – (1 – B)tcg  基于公式 2b
B = Cost basis proportion of current market value of the investment 3M237
Equation (3b) : FVIFcgb = (1 + r)n(1 – tcg) + tcgB   3a 的变形式
Example 4: Cost Basis 3M238 (无参考价值)
3.1.4 Wealth-Based Taxes 3M238
A wealth tax is applied annually to a specific capital base(principal and return).
注 a wealth tax consumes a greater proportion of investment growth when returns are lower.238
Equation (4) : FVIFw = [(1 + r)(1 – tw)]n  

3.2 Blended Taxing Enviroment 3M239

Unrealized capital gains = total return – interest - dividend - realized capital gains 3M240
In this setting, the annual return after realized taxes can be expressed as

r* = r(1 – piti – pdtd – prealized cgtrealized cg) 3M240

r=pre-tax overall return;r*=effective annual after-tax return

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

pi = interest portion percentage; pd = dividend portion percentage; pcg = realized capital gain

Effective deferred(unrealized) capital gains tax rate 如下: 3M241(组合最终变现时所被征收税

其中:r*=effective annual after-tax return after tax erosions.
T*= effective deferred capital gains tax rate
B = Cost basis proportion of current market value of the investment

3.3 Accrual Equivalent Returns & Tax Rates 3M243

accrual equivalent after-tax return: tax-free return, if accrued annually, produces the same
after-tax accumulation as taxable portfolio. 3M243
3.3.1 Calculating Accrual Equivalent Returns 3M244 RAE = return of accrual equivalent
初始投资额 x ( 1+RAE) n = future after-tax accumulation(扣除 taxes on interest, dividend,
realized capital gains & 组合到期后 unrealized capital gains)
3.3.2 Calculate Accrual Equivalent Tax Rates 3M244 ( levied annually)
r ( 1-TAE ) = RAE 其中 r = average annual return during investment horizon
Example 9 Accrual Equivalent Return 3M245

4. Types of Investment Accounts 3M24

Investment accounts can be classified into three categories:
1) Taxable accounts 2) tax-deferred accounts: retirement saving plans & defined contribution
pension plan 3) tax exempt: 3M246
4.1 Tax-Deferred Accounts. 3M246
Equation (7): FVIFTDA = (1 + r)n(1 – Tn)  和 deferred capital gain 公式不同之处:对期初本金
4.2 Tax-Exempt Accounts 3M246
Equation (8): FVIFTaxEx = (1 + r)n   Example 10 Compare Accumulations of Acct Types 3M247
注:Contributions to a tax-exempt account are taxable, a pretax investment of 1 euro is reduced
to (1 − T0), where T0 = tax rate to initial pretax contribution.
Tax-exempt acct & tax deferred acct 区别在于:T0 与 Tn 谁大。3M249
Example 11 Choose Among Acct types: Taxable acct, tax deferred acct & tax exempt aact.3M249
5. Taxes & Investment Risk 3M250 original investment = 100,000 euro
Taxes absorb pretax volatility(standard deviation), thus absorb some investment risk; after-tax
volatility = (1 − t) * pretax volatility.

公式前提:assumes that recipient paies gift
tax instead of donor
只要 Tg < Te,或者,虽然 Tg = Te,但 gifting 后的 tig < tie,则 gifting 仍有避税优势。3M292
4.1.3 Location of the Gift Tax Liability 3M293
Some jurisdictions impose gift tax liability on donor(即使 gifting away their assets)
这样做法的优势:tax benefit of the lifetime gift versus the bequest increases.Donor 代付这笔钱

3 Credit Spread 3O200
3.1 Credit Spread Measures 3O200

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

3.1.1 Benchmark Spread & G-Spread 3O200

Benchmark spread = credit security yield – benchmark bond yield(with no or little credit risk)
注:1) benchmark 通常是 on-the-run government bond. 2) 顾虑:maturity mismatch between
benchmark & credit security. 3O200
G-spread = credit security yield – actual or interpolated government bond.
注:When no government bond exists that has the same maturity as the credit security, a linear
interpolation of the yields on two on-the-run government bonds is used as the benchmark rate,
where their weighted average duration matches the credit security’s duration.3O200
好处:1)hedge credit securities’ interest rate risk:sell or sell short duration-weighted amounts
of two benchmark government bonds out of his portfolio 2)estimate yield & price changes for
fixed-rate credit securities that do not have optionality. 3O200
Example 2: Using G-Spread to Calculate Interest Rate Hedges and Price Changes 3O201 再看
设 10 年期政府债券=10s 债,7 年期政府债券=7s 债,credit security=CS
计算步骤: 1)duration match: weighting7s 债=【(effective duration10s 债- effective durationCS
债)/(effective duration10s 债- effective duration7S 债)】3O201
Weighting10s 债=【(effective duration7s 债- effective durationCS 债)/(effective duration10s
债 - effective duration7S 债)】
2) Linearly interpolated yield from 7s&10s 债= weighting7s 债 x yield7s 债+ Weighting10s 债 x
yield 10s 债 3O201
3)Price change CS = Price CS 初始 x【1+(effective duration x -Δinterpolated yield%) 】3O201
3.1.2 I-Spread (Interpolated spread) 3O202= risky-bond yield – swap rate for same maturity
当无可参考 swap rate 时,可用 linear Interpolation(I 即使此意)来估算。
Interpolated spread = lower bound spread + (new issuance 与 lower bound duration 差) / (higher
与 lower bound duration 差) * (higher – lower credit spread)3O214 Example 8
3.1.3 Z-spread & Option-Adjusted Spread. 3O203

coupon payment coupon payment coupon + principal payment
PresentValue= -------------------- +--------------------- + ---------------------------------------
( S1+ZS) ( S2+ZS) ( Sn+ZS)n
注:S1, S2…Sn 是 Spot rate for 1 year, 2 year….n year 三级书中也无以上公式
Option-adjusted spread (OAS): 适用于带 option bonds.
The OAS is the constant spread added to all the one-period forward rates on the interest rate tree,
to make arbitrage-free bond value equal to its market price. 3O203
OAS 缺点:1)基于 assumptions on future interest rate volatility. 3O203 2)带 option
bonds’realized spread 一般≠OAS. 3O203
OAS 比起其他 spread measure 的优势(少了多少 bp):反应 call option value[to issuer]204
3.1.4 Credit Spread Measures in a Portfolio Context 3O204: OAS 最合适,因为反应 optionality.
To calculate a portfolio OAS, each bond’s OAS is weighted by its market value. 3O204
Example 4 OAS of a Portfolio 3O204(可不看)只记住:market value of Bond A = total face value
x 【( current price + accrued interest ) / 100】=>方括号内算出了 1 美元面值 bond 的市价
3.2 Excess Return 3O205
Excess return: a bond return after interest rate risk has been hedged. [as compensation for
assuming credit-related risks] 3O205
Equation 1: XR ≈ (s × t) – (Δs × SD)   基于 no default losses.

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

注:XR = holding-period excess return; s = spread at the beginning of the holding period,
t = holding period expressed in fractions of a year;Δs = credit spread change during the holding
period=期末值-期初值;SD = spread duration of the bond.==> – (Δs × SD) 是 credit spread 变化
对 bond price value 的影响 3O205
Equation 2: EXR ≈ (s × t) – (Δs × SD) – (t × p × L)   基于 possibility of future default losses.
注 EXR = expected excess return;p = annualized expected probability of default;L = expected
loss severity.  (p × L) = expected annual credit loss. 3O205

注:rolling return: moving average of the holding-period returns for a specified period that
matches the investor’s time horizon. RRn,t = (Rt + Rt–1 + Rt–2 + … + Rt–(n–1))/n 3P79

二、Volatility & Downside Volatility: 3P79: 最常用的是 standard deviation of returns.
Annualized SD = monthly SD * square root of 12. 基于 normal distribution. 但 hedge funds 有
skewness & kurtosis,此时 SD 不能代表 HF 的真实 risk。3P80
Downside deviation (也称 semi-deviation): 1) computes deviation from a specified threshold(如
below a specified return, r*); 2) only negative deviations are included. 3)Semi-deviation uses
average monthly return as the threshold. 3P80 4)计算过程同 Standard deviation. 3P80

Where min(A,B) means “A or B, whichever is smaller”

3P80 且所有正差值都归零

Drawdown = difference between a portfolio’s point of maximum NAV for the period (its
high-water mark) and any subsequent low point (until new “high water mark” is reached).
Maximum drawdown = largest difference between a high-water point and a subsequent low. 80
三、Performance Appraisal Measures: 最常用 sharp ratio: Sharpe ratio = (Annualized rate of
return – Annualized risk-free rate)/Annualized standard deviation. 注:annualized risk-free rate
一般是 one-year T-bill yield. 3P80
Sortino ratio: downside risk. => Sortino ratio = (Annualized rate of return – Annualized minimum
acceptable return)/Downside deviation 3P82
Gain-to-loss ratio = (Number of months with positive returns/Number of months with negative
returns) × (Average up-month return/Average down-month return) 3P82 绝对值越大越好

Add-on interest rate:期初设 rate,期末结算:每期 floating rate payment= loan amount * (期初
libor established at previous reset day + any attached basis points) * (每期 actual days / 360)
a floating-rate bond’s duration ≈

Duration of a swap (pay-fixed & receive floating) = duration of (long) a floating rate bond –
duration of (short) fixed-rate bond. 3P362=>为负

B = bond portfolio market value;
MDURT = Target modified duration;
MDURB = initial portfolio modified duration; MDURs = interest rate swap modified duration 3P365

Duration of a M-year floating-rate bond with ttl N periodic payments = 1*M / (2*N) 3P365
Duration of a M-year fixed rate bond = M * durationfixed-rate bond 3P365
2.3. Using Swaps to Create and Manage the Risk of Structured Notes 3P366
2.3.1. Using Swaps to Create and Manage the Risk of Leveraged Floating-Rate Notes 3P366
Leveraged floating-rate notes (leveraged floater): a leveraged structured note with a principal of
FP that pays an interest rate of 1.5 times Libor =>leverage 指 coupon is a multiple of a specific
market rate of interest such as Libor 3P366
操作步骤分解:1)KAT 先问 LifeCo 贷款,付息 1.5 倍 libor*FP(face/principal value) 2)KAT 拿
着借款去买 American Factories 的 fixed rate bond,收 ci(fixed interest rate on a bond)*1.5FP
3)与 Omega 签 payer swap,notional principal of 1.5FP,付 FS(fixed rate on swap)
,收 floating
rate of Libor. =>付给 LifeCo 的 floating 被 Omega 的 swap 完全抵消,net effect 是从 American
所收的 1.5 (ci)(FP) 与向 Omega 所付的 1.5(FS)(FP)之差即 net effect = 1.5 * FP *(ci – FS)
当 the bond has greater
credit risk than the swap
时,net effect 正数

3)Vega 签 receiver swap,

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

再次收 fixed rate,付 floating rate=>再次完全消除浮息 L 的影响。Net effect = FP*(FS+ci - b)

3P 368
显然 b 越低越好,但这样步骤一的浮息贷款(b-L)FP 吸引力越低。3P368;但 inverse floater
购买方不会让 b-L<0, 所以 vega 还要买 interest rate cap with X rate of b 来对冲 b < L 的风险。
Price paid for the cap is an additional cost. 3P369 => Example 4 3P370

evaluation period 3Q129
注:R = money-weighted return normally on daily basis. Example 5 3Q129 可再看
4.6. The Linked Internal Rate of Return 3Q131
Linked Internal Rate of Return (LIRR) method: TWR should be approximated by calculating the
MWR over reasonably frequent time intervals and then chain-linking those returns over the
entire evaluation period. 3Q131 Example 7 3Q132
4.7. Annualized Return 3Q132
If the total investment period > one year, you must take the geometric mean(几何平均数/开根
根=number of years in measurement period) Example 8 3Q132
5 Benchmarks 3Q133
5.1 Concept of a Benchmark 3Q134 LOS e
Equation 6: Portfolio = Benchmark + Active Management Decisions. 3Q134
Equation 7: Portfolio = Market index + Manager’s investment style + Active Management
Decisions. 3Q134
其中:Manager’s investment style = Benchmark – Market index. 3Q134 比如 market index 是
S&P 500,而 benchmark 可能是 S&P 500 中的权重股指数。
5.3 Types of Benchmarks 3Q136 LOS f
5. Factor-Model-Based: equation 8: Rp = ap + βpRI + εp   3Q137 (one-factor model)
注:Rp =periodic return on the market index; RI = return on market index; εp = residual or
nonsystematic element. βp = the sensitivity of the returns on the account to the returns on the
market index; ap = “zero factor” term. 3Q138
5.6. Tests of Benchmark Quality 3Q142 LOS i
1. Systematic biases: Over time, there should be minimal systematic biases or risks in the
benchmark relative to the account. 测试方法:1)计算 historical beta of account relative to
benchmark ≈ 1 on average 3Q14 2)correlation between A = (P – B) and S = (B – M)a
good benchmark will display a correlation between A and S that is not statistically different from
zero. 3)E (difference) = account portfolio – market index  a manager’s style (S) is in favor
relative to the market, both the benchmark and the account outperform the market. a good
benchmark will have a statistically significant positive correlation coefficient between S and E.
5. (Benchmark) Turnover: proportion of benchmark’s market value allocated to purchases during
a periodic rebalancing of benchmark. Because benchmark should be investable, turnover should
not be so excessive as to preclude a passively managed portfolio strategy. 3Q143
6. Positive Active Positions: An active position = an account’s allocation to a security -
corresponding weight of same security in benchmark;negative active positions 使 benchmark 不
能反映经理投资 approach. 3Q143

5.7. Hedge Funds and Hedge Fund Benchmarks 3Q143

Hedge funds: expose investors to a particular investment opportunity while minimizing (or
hedging) other investment risks that could impact the outcome. #143
因为 long-short position 可能使 initial market value=0(active weights sum = 0),公式 1 不能用,
推荐公式 9:3Q144

rv = rp – rB   where rν = value-added return; rp = portfolio return; rB = benchmark return

6 Performance Attribution (定量分析)3Q146

6.4. Conducting a Macro Attribution Analysis 3Q150 LOS l
以下 6 点被当成 investment strategies,each investment results are compared to cumulative
results of previous levels. 随数字变大,有 increasing volatility & complexity.  Macro
attribution calculates incremental contribution that choice to move to next strategy
produces.3Q150 分析按照以下 6 点数字顺序逐步叠加剖析。
注:Each decision-making level represents a valid benchmark (investment alternative). 3Q150
1)Net Contributions: (contribution or withdrawl) invested at a rate of zero. 3Q151
2)Risk-Free Asset: 3Q151
3)Asset Categories: the Fund’s beginning value and external cash flows are invested passively in a
combination of the designated asset category benchmarkspure index fund approach.
Equation 10(return-metric):
注 : rAC = incremental return contribution of Asset Category
investment strategy, rCi = return on the ith asset category,
rf =risk-free return, wi = policy weight assigned to asset category i,
and A = the number of asset categories. 3Q151-152
4)Benchmarks: represent managers’investment styles. 3Q152misfit return (style bias)
=benchmark return – asset category return 注:benchmark return = 1-4 步 ttl return;asset
category return = 1-3 步 ttl return. 3Q153
Equation 11(return-metric):
注: rIS =incremental return contribution of the Benchmarks
strategy, rBij = return for the jth manager’s benchmark in asset
category i, rCi = return on the ith asset category[market index],
wi = policy weight assigned to the ith asset category, wij = policy weight assigned to the jth
manager in asset category i, and A and M are the number of asset categories and managers.
5)Investment Managers or Value of Active Management: further deviation from benchmark:
managers’ active bets based on actual portfolio.Equation 12(return-metric): 3Q153
注 : rIM =incremental return contribution of Active
Management strategy, rAij=actual return on the jth manager’s
portfolio within asset category i
6)Allocation Effects: Allocation Effects incremental contribution is a reconciling factor = Fund’s
ending value - value calculated at the Investment Managers level(1-5 步 ttl value) 3Q154
源于:fund sponsors deviate from their policy allocations to asset categories & managers.3Q154
6.5. Micro Attribution Overview 3Q154 LOS k & L
Equation 13 : Rv = = Active Return = Rportfolio –Rbenchmark = 展开如下
注: Wpi = proportions of the actual Portfolio invested in security i;

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

Wbi = proportions of the Portfolio invested in security i;

Equation 14 : Equation 13 变形式 simplest form of micro performance attribution: a
security-by-security attribution analysis 3Q155

注:rB = return on the Porfolio’s benchmark 3Q155

用 Equation 14 做 micro 分析缺点: large number of securities in a well-diversified portfolio makes

the impact of any individual security uninteresting. 3Q155
6.6. Sector Weighting/Stock Selection Micro Attribution 3Q156 LOS k & l
Equation 15:
注:wpj = Portfolio weight of sector j;wBj = benchmark weight of sector j
rpj = Portfolio return of sector j;rBj = benchmark return of sector j
S = number of sectors 3Q157
Equation 16: Equation 15 变形式 3Q158 rB = returns on overall portfolio’s benchmark 3Q158

6.8. Fixed-Income Attribution 3Q161 LOS n & o

Ttl return of a fixed income portfolio’s attributions = external interest rate effect + active
management effect: 3Q165
7 Performance Apprasial (定性分析)3Q167
7.1. Risk-Adjusted Performance Appraisal Measures 3Q168 LOS p & q
1. Ex Post Alpha(也称 Jensen’s alpha): 基于 ex post Security Market Line横轴是β=COV
i,mkt ,纵轴是 expected return on asset i 3Q168
Equation 17:

Equation 18: equation 17 变形式,成为 linear

regression for a period of t, 3Q168
2. Treynor Measure: 也源自 ex post SML,是 SML 的 slope
Equation 19: 注:分子两个因子都是 average values over the evaluation
period. 分母是 expected value. 3Q169
小结: 1)ex post alpha 和 Treynor measure 有 same assessment 结论。
2) only consider beta (market risks)
3. Sharp Ratio: 3Q169 Equation 20:
1) 基于 ex post CML (capital market line)  a skilful manager’s acct return 将高于
CML 2) portfolio standarddeviation include both beta & alpha(active management)

CFA III 各章节计算公式汇总

4. M2 : 同 sharp ratio, 基于 ex post CML

Equation 21: M2 measures what the account would have returned if it had taken on the same
total risk as the market index. 3Q169
注:1)A skillful manager’s M2 value > market index return.

5. Information ratio: Equation 22: 3Q170

分母=active return = long position in the account is funded by a short position
in the benchmark. 3Q170
分子=active risk = standard deviation of difference between acct returns &
benchmark returns. 3Q170  所以只有 alpha related risk.
