Economics Letters, 2019, vol. 181, issue C, 203-207

Abstract: We extend the concept of cost-efficiency of Dybvig (1988) to account for benchmarks and provide a generalization of the efficiency test from Amin and Kat (2003). We illustrate the new efficiency test by ranking a panel of hedge funds based on their probability distribution and their interaction with a benchmark.
