Analytic solution to the portfolio optimization problem in a mean-variance-skewness model

摘要:

In portfolio theory, it is well-knownthat the distributions of stock returns are often unimodal asymmetricdistributions. Therefore, many research papers have suggested considering theskew-normal distribution as an adequate model in quantitative finance. Suchasymmetry explains why the celebrated mean-variance theory, which does notaccount to the skewness of the distribution of returns, frequently fails toprovide an optimal portfolio selection rule. In this paper, we provide a novelapproach for solving the problem of optimal portfolio selection for asymmetricdistributions of the stock returns, by putting it into a framework of amean-variance-skewness measure. Moreover, our optimal solutions are explicitand are closed-form. In particular, we provide an analytical portfoliooptimization solution to the exponential utility of the well-known skew-normaldistribution. Our analytical solution can be investigated in comparison toother portfolio selection rules, such as the standard mean-variance model. Thenew methodology is illustrated numerically.

摘要:

In thispaper, we rationalize using downside risk optimization

subjectto a random target in portfolio selection. In context of

normality,we derive analytical solutions to the downside risk

optimizationwith respect to random targets and investigate how the

randomtarget affects the optimal solutions. In doing so, we propose

usingportfolio amplitude, as a new measure in literature, to

characterizethe investment strategy. Particularly, we demonstrate the mechanism by whichthe random target inputs

itsimpact into the system and alters the optimal portfolio selection.

Ourresults underpin why investors prefer holding some specific assets in followingrandom targets and provide explanations for some special investment strategies,such as constructing a stock portfolio following a bond index. Numericalexamples are presented to clarify our theoretical results.
