Real estate industry is a fast growing reality in all European Countries and during the last years also Italian market shows a significant increase in the number of real estate funds available not only for institutional investors. The increasing role of retail investors in the industry makes necessary to study simple return/risk measures that could be easily understood also by not financial skilled investors. Measures frequently used in the asset management industry are the Risk Adjusted Performance Measures scale independent. Studies available in literature evaluate the fitness of these measures in order to select best investment opportunities under the simplified assumption of the normality of results achieved. Looking at the Italian market, the paper studies the performance of Real Estate Funds traded in the Italian market for the time period 1999-2009 and verifies that the assumption of the normality of results is not coherent. Demonstrated the limits of this assumption, the paper compares ranking based on Sharpe ratio with those achieved using different Rap measures constructed using different risk measures. Results demonstrate that rankings obtained are not strictly correlated and measures that do not assume the normality of returns identify rakings that are more stable over time. Rap measures corrected for the not normality of returns fit the best for funds highly leveraged and/or less traded.
