What is a quartile?

Quartiles divide a range of data points into four roughly equal groups. In this case, the 31 pension fund investment options in Chant West’s High Growth category are divided into four groups of seven or eight investment options according to their performance over periods from 3 months to 15 years.

The top 25% of investment options ranked by performance are in Quartile 1 for each period, the next 25% are in Quartile 2, the following 25% are in Quartile 3 and the bottom 25% are in Quartile 4.

The first table below gives the median performance of investment options in the top and bottom quartiles, along with the median investment option’s performance. The median investment option is the one that appears halfway down the rankings. The second table shows the quartile ranking for each investment option.
