A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF ROBUST PORTFOLIO OPTIMIZATION
Robust Equity Portfolio Management offers one–of–a–kind coverage that makes the highly complex and mathematically difficult practice of robust portfolio optimization accessible and easy to implement. With the academic thoroughness and hands–on applicability books in the Fabozzi Series are known for, this complete guide takes you on a dynamic course to master robust portfolio optimization and use it to significantly reduce portfolio risk and resolve the sensitivity issue of the traditional Markowitz mean–variance model. Develop your skills on the accompanying website where you can safely apply what you learned and experiment with constructing robust portfolios for equity portfolio management. This groundbreaking book:
- Introduces the mean–variance model, discusses its shortcomings, and explains common approaches for increasing the robustness of portfolios
- Contains an overview of optimization and details the steps involved in formulating a robust portfolio optimization problem
- Focuses on analyzing robust portfolios constructed from robust portfolio optimization by identifying attributes and summarizing performances
Robust Equity Portfolio Management prepares you to solve all possible uncertainties, which is a good strategy in any market.
