Real, Inflation discounted returns

Similarly to how benchmarks work, allow to choose an index (e.g. inflation), benchmark, asset or filter to discount the return with.

When inflation index is chosen - it gives you the Real Return.

If a benchmark is chosen, it gives you the Excess Return - the added value beyond what could be achieved by simply investing in the benchmark (it’s not a simple difference!).

The discount would be applied to:

  • RoR of the portfolio - both in metrics, tables and charts
  • Benchmark rate - in metrics and charts
  • Market Price change rate

It (rather) won’t be applied to return $ amounts, as it may quickly get very confusing. However, there could be a separate metric displaying the discounted return
