How is the default analysis period determined?

For an individual investment, the default analysis period is the full span of the available data for that investment.

For a portfolio with multiple investments spanning different time frames, the default analysis period is the longest overlapping period of all investments' available data, including the assigned benchmark. For example, if a portfolio has two investments, one with data from 1/1/1987 to 7/1/2016 and one with data spanning 1/1/2000 to 1/1/2017, Venn will show analyses from 1/1/2000 to 7/1/2016.

As you are adding investments or benchmarks to your analyses, it’s always a good practice to check the time frame of available data.

Can I change the analysis period?

In cases where you want to analyze metrics for a specific period in time, you would want to adjust the analysis period.

The analysis period may be set to a subsection of the default period (“Full History”) but cannot expand beyond given data availability.

If you would like to analyze on a wider time frame, you need to do one of the following:

  • Remove investments with shorter histories

  • Add proxies to the investments with shorter histories to backfill or substitute returns

  • Upload the latest returns for the investments missing recent performance (if available)
