Variance minimization approach to trackingVariance minimization approach to trackingAn approach to bond indexing that uses historical data to estimate the variance of the tracking error. CovarianceCovarianceA measure of the extent to which two economic or statistical variables move up and down together. For two variables x and y with values xi, yi, i=1,…,n, the covariance is cov(x,y) = Si=1…n(xim(x))(yim(y)), where m(·) is the mean of the values in its argument. VarianceVarianceA measure of dispersion of a set of data points around their mean value. The mathematical expectation of the average squared deviations from the mean. The square root of the variance is the standard deviation.
