(YTD) Year to Date

The term "Year to Date" (YTD) is a financial term used to describe the total performance of an investment, company, or financial metric from the beginning of the current year to the present date. The YTD performance is a way to track progress and see how a financial entity has performed so far during the current year. This is often used to assess an investment's performance compared to its benchmark or to evaluate the overall performance of a company's financials compared to the previous year. It can also be used to evaluate a person's income, expenses, or savings so far this year compared to the same period in previous years.
