Book Allocations - A full book allocation spreadsheet with calculations of gross and net performance with several supporting schedules such as; summary of monthly performance, graphs and a few performance measures.

Stop using Microsoft Word for partner letters! This spreadsheet also has a monthly performance partner letter macro that allows you to hit a button and print a letter for every partner with their partnership %, month's performance and YTD Performance and your commentary about the performance. The macro needs to be customized for each fund.
We have calculated net performance for the partnership as a whole on this spreadsheet with a straight 20% charge to gross performance on a monthly basis, then linking all the returns. Since there is no standard for reporting net performance for the partnership as a whole or at least we are not aware of any, this method seems to give a fair representation of net performance for the entire fund. When the hedge fund community decides to show fund managers how to calculate net performance for their fund as a whole, we will update the spreadsheet. We am absolutely convinced that many fund managers are calculating net performance incorrectly. If this is true, then many of the firms providing the hedge fund industry's performance to news agencies are providing inaccurate information. We have also received a number of e-mails from managers requesting information on calculating net returns for the fund as a whole to support our opinion. THIS SPREADSHEET WILL HOWEVER CALCULATE AN INDIVIDUAL PARTNER'S RETURN WITHOUT DISPUTE.
