Portfolio Selection and Asset Pricing: Models of Financial Economics and Their Applications in Investing (Hardcover)
This uniquely comprehensive guide provides expert insights into everything from financial mathematics to the practical realities of asset allocation and pricing
Investors like you typically have a choice to make when seeking guidance for portfolio selection―either a book of practical, hands-on approaches to your craft or an academic tome of theories and mathematical formulas.
From three top experts, Portfolio Selection and Asset Pricing strikes the right balance with an extensive discussion of mathematical foundations of portfolio choice and asset pricing models, and the practice of asset allocation. This thorough guide is conveniently organized into four sections:
- Mathematical Foundations―normed vector spaces, optimization in discrete and continuous time, utility theory, and uncertainty
- Portfolio Models―single-period and continuous-time portfolio choice, analogies, asset allocation for a sovereign as an example, and liability-driven allocation
- Asset Pricing―capital asset pricing models, factor models, option pricing, and expected returns
- Robust Asset Allocation―robust estimation of optimization inputs, such as the Black-Litterman Model and shrinkage, and robust optimizers
