In this paper we study the problem of measuring investment performance when superior performance is identified with superior information. We do this in the context of a full equilibrium model of securities markets, in which agents have diverse and asymmetric private information and behave optimally. It is shows that the traditional risk-return measures are inappropriate in this context, and we develop alternatives statistical procedures for making valid performance inferences.
