Return on Equity

The Return on Equity, or ROE, measures how efficiently a company uses Shareholders’ Equity to generate profits. It is calculated as the Net Profit for the year, divided by Average Book Value, or Equity, for the period. This is measured on a 2 year historical basis and earnings are normalised.
