A measure of how quickly a business or an investment fund changes its assets or holdings over a year.

Annual turnover is a measure of how quickly a business or an investment fund changes its assets or holdings over a year. It can be computed by dividing the total amount of sales or acquisitions (whichever is bigger) by the typical value of assets or holdings over the same time period. The effectiveness, productivity, and activity of a company or a fund can be determined by its annual turnover.

Annual turnover can take many different forms and serve a variety of functions. For instance, inventory turnover reveals how quickly a business sells its stock over a specific period of time. By dividing the average inventory by the cost of goods sold (COGS), it can be computed. A high inventory turnover demonstrates both the company's strong product demand and its low inventory costs. Low inventory turnover indicates that the business either has too much inventory or weak sales.

Accounts receivable turnover is another sort of annual turnover that demonstrates how rapidly a business collects money from its clients. To figure it out, divide the credit sales by the typical accounts receivable. The company has effective credit practices and devoted consumers if its accounts receivable turnover is large. Low accounts receivable turnover indicates that a company has lax credit policies or has trouble collecting payments.

The annual turnover for investment funds refers to the portion of a portfolio that is sold or replaced every year. It can be computed by subtracting the average value of assets under management from the sum of all acquisitions or sells, whichever is greater (AUM). A fund with a high yearly turnover is actively managed, which involves higher trading expenses and taxes. The fund is passively managed and employs a buy-and-hold strategy if it has a low annual turnover.

The performance and profitability of a company or investment fund are frequently measured using the annual turnover statistic. As it does not account for other elements like profit margins, growth rates, risk exposure, or market conditions, it shouldn't be utilized alone. To provide a more accurate view of the issue, annual turnover should be contrasted with industry benchmarks or historical trends.
