DEFINITION of 'Up-Market Capture Ratio'

A statistical measure of an investment manager's overall performance in up-markets.

The ratio is calculated by dividing the manager's returns by the returns of the index during the up-market, and multiplying that factor by 100.

up market capture ratio = manager returns/index returns x 100
