Skewness measures the distribution return asymmetries. A negative skewness, which is often the case for stocks and hedge funds, implies more than 50% of the returns on the right of the mean or/and that the mean\'s left returns are far from the mean compared to the right\'s mean returns. One says that the distribution is negatively skewed. The explanation of the skewness has three theoretical sources:

- investor preferences (Grossman, Zhou, 1996)

- transaction costs (Constantinides, 1997)

- stochastic processes with changing volatility and jumps (Bates, 1996)
