Alpha

Alpha is the term used to denote the excess return on an investment relative to the benchmark that is generated by active management. Alpha represents the outperformance or underperformance, of a fund, for example, relative to the benchmark. A positive alpha indicates that the fund has performed better than the benchmark; a negative alpha that it has performed worse.
