The investment process of pension funds is strategically important as well as the fund performance for beneficiaries, retirement corporations and regulatory authorities. The analyses of these data are an important clue for the potential number of beneficiaries and the effectiveness of pension fund investments. Nevertheless, the financial performance of pension funds is strongly linked with the experiences, perception, capability and foresight of pension fund managers. From this point of view, the measurement of fund managers’selectivity and timing capabilities (with the help of “risk†factor) is more explanatory for the analysis of fund performance. The aim of this article is to measure the fund managers’performance with the generally accepted performance evaluation techniques and analyze the results that will help the financial decision process of beneficiaries. When we analyze the results of the study, the wide varieties of pension fund managers have not adequate selectivity and timing capability. However, there are significant differences between the results of regression models (Quadratic and Dummy Variable) and traditional performance evaluation techniques which is a very important problem for retirement beneficiaries
