About Simulations Plus Performance

These indexes can act as benchmarks that will help you to understand Simulations Plus market performance in a much more refined way. The Macroaxis performance score is an integer between 0 and 100 that represents Simulations's market performance from a risk-adjusted return perspective. Generally speaking, the higher the score, the better is overall performance as compared to other investors. The score is normalized against the average investing universe (the best we can interpret from the data available). Within this methodology, scores of individual equity instruments will always be inferior to the scores of portfolios of equities as portfolios typically diversify a lot of unsystematic risks away. The formula to derive the Macroaxis score bases on multiple unequally-weighted factors. For more information, refer to our portfolio performance evaluation section.
