An adaptive approach for the ranking of investment funds by the fund of funds manager is presented. This is a quantitative tool to help the manager make a decision regarding ranking of funds and allocating capital between them for the next few months (for example, for the next quarter) where the available information/data is limited to daily returns for a relatively short time period (for example, the ending quarter). This new adaptive algorithm comes in line with those computational methods that fill the gap between more sophisticated approaches (that need more information/data available and more powerful cluster of the analytic computing procedures) and non-numerical Laplacian approach (where capital is allocated more or less equally between all funds that did not fail in a previous quarter).
