Absolute return

When investors talk about absolute returns they are talking about the actual return an investment makes rather than how it does relative to an index or benchmark. Absolute return funds usually aim to make investors money rather than outperform an index or benchmark – after all the index / benchmark might be falling and, while it might be great that you’ve outperformed, you might still have lost money.
