Stochastic Dominance, Mutual Funds Separation and Portfolio Frontier

Part of the Springer Finance book series (FINANCE)


In Chapter 2 we have shown that portfolio problems can be very complex. In general, no explicit formula for the optimal portfolio exists. In this chapter we present some instruments useful to address the portfolio problem. The goal is to provide conditions on the probability distribution of asset returns so that the choice problem is simplified.
