Your Jasper portfolio overview reports on a series of metrics that help you keep track of performance and returns over time.

When calculating total returns Jasper uses the Modified Dietz Method. The Modified Dietz method is a way to measure a portfolio's historical return that is based on a weighted calculation of its cash flow. The method takes into account the timing of cash flows and assumes that there is a constant rate of return over a specified period of time. The modified Dietz method is considered to be more accurate than the simple Dietz method, which assumes that all cash flows come from the middle of the period of time being evaluated.
