What Alpha? In one of my earlier videos, I talked about Beta. Alpha and Beta are like two siblings that go hand in hand. Together with the risk-free rate, they can collectively explain where your returns are coming from.

1. What is Alpha
2. What are the components driving a portfolio's returns
3. How to calculate Alpha on MS Excel
4. What are the uses of Alpha
5. What do you need to take note of about Alpha
