The Quartiles’ Oxymoron

I could not resist tying a rhetorical figure with financial mathematics. But there is no better description for IRR quartiles – an oxymoron.

In the private capital industry jargon, quartiles are ranked sets of IRR.

But, it is a well-established notion that IRR should not be used for ranking investments!
