The information ratio (IR) is a ratio to assess an investment fund. The ratio is calculated by dividing the difference between the fund’s performance and the benchmarkby the fund risk (expressed as tracking error). The tracking error shows the volatility of the deviation of fund performance from benchmark performance, and is an indicator of fund risk. The higher the information ratio, the more profitable is an investment strategy that deviated from the index (active management).
