Standard Deviation

 In

A statistical measurement of dispersion around an average depicting how widely a fund’s returns varied over a certain period of time. Investors use the standard deviation of historical performance to try to predict the range of returns that are most likely for a given fund. When a fund has a high standard deviation, the predicted range of performance is wide, implying greater volatility or risk.
