TIME-WEIGHTED RETURNS (TWR) Another form of geometrically linked or compounded returns is time-weighted returns (TWR), widely used in the investment industry. TWR is not in itself a form of return but a method of calculating returns over time while attempting to ensure inter-temporal consistency. The US standard-setting body is the Association for Investment Management Research (AIMR): this body’s GIPS standards (Global Investment Performance Standard) require the calculation of time-weighted returns using quarterly data as a minimum.

Therefore the GIPS standards accept approximation methods such as the Modified Dietz method, whereby each cash flow is weighted by the amount of time it has been held in the portfolio. It is also assumed that within each period there exists a constant rate of return on the asset. Thus there is no need to perform a portfolio valuation each time a transaction has occurred, since each cash flow is simply assigned a weight within each period. Dietz0,t ϭ T ͚ (wt Ϫ 1)Ct tϭ0 MV0 ϩ T ͚ wt C t tϭ0 tϪq where wt ϭ is the cash flow weight determined by the proportion of t time the cash flow was in or out of the portfolio.
