    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Andreas Prastorfer; [2020]
    Keywords : Risk Management; Portfolio Optimization; Conditional Value-at-Risk; Coherent Distortion Riks Measures; Elliptical Distribution; GARCH model; Normal Copulas; Extreme Value Theory; Risk Contributions; Riskhantering; Portföljoptimering; Conditional Value-at-Risk; Koherenta distortionsriskmått; Elliptiska fördelningar; GARCH modeller; Normal-copula; Extremvärdes teori; Riskbidrag;

    Abstract : This master's thesis studies portfolio optimization using linear programming algorithms. The contribution of this thesis is an extension of the convex framework for portfolio optimization with Conditional Value-at-Risk, introduced by Rockafeller and Uryasev. READ MORE

  2. 2. Portfolio Optimization Using the Atkinson Index

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Nils Billgert; [2019]
    Keywords : atkinson index; performance measure; portfolio optimization; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Traditional mean-variance optimization of portfolios has received much criticism due to its inability to account for higher order moments and non-quadratic utility. In this thesis, the topic of portfolio optimization is studied using the Atkinson index with CRRA utility. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Utility Approach: Strategy Analysis and Optimization

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Magnús Ólafur Sigurdsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Utility optimization; Portfolio analysis; Dynamic programming; Bellman equation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Utility theory and Monte Carlo simulations are used to calculate optimal allocation for long term as well as, risk averse investors with a portfolio consisting of one risky asset and one risk-free bank account. The problems solved in this thesis are divided into two types, static and dynamic. READ MORE

  4. 4. Portfolio Optimization : A DCC-GARCH forecast with implied volatility

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för ekonomistyrning och logistik (ELO); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för ekonomistyrning och logistik (ELO)

    Abstract : This thesis performs portfolio optimization using three allocation methods, Certainty Equivalence Tangency (CET), Global Minimum Variance (GMV) and Minimum Conditional Value-at-Risk (MinCVaR). We estimate expected returns and covariance matrices based on 7 stock market indices with a DCC-GARCH model including an ARMA (1. READ MORE
