It is commonly accepted that the distribution of returns on many financial assets is nonnormal. Mandelbrot  and Fama  proposed the α-stable distribution for modeling stock returns. In  we find that the geometric summation scheme provides a better model for univariate stock index data than various stable alternatives, including the α-stable model. Here we extend the geometric summation model to multivariate settings which allows us to model portfolios of financial assets.
