Modern portfolio theory MPTor mean-variance analysisis a mathematical framework for assembling a portfolio of assets such that the expected return is maximized for a given level of risk.

It is a formalization and extension of diversification in investing, the idea that owning different kinds of financial assets is less risky than owning only one type. Its key insight is that an asset’s risk and return should not be assessed by itself, but by how it contributes to a portfolio’s overall risk and return.

It uses the variance of asset prices as a proxy for risk [1]. MPT assumes that investors are risk averse, meaning that given two portfolios that offer the same expected return, investors will prefer the less risky one.

Thus, an investor will take on increased risk only if compensated by higher expected returns. Conversely, an investor who wants higher expected returns must accept more risk. The exact trade-off will be the same for all investors, but different investors will evaluate the trade-off differently based on individual risk aversion characteristics. The implication is that a rational investor will not invest in a portfolio if a second portfolio exists with a more favorable risk-expected return profile — i.

In other words, investors can reduce their exposure to individual asset risk by holding a diversified portfolio of assets.

Diversification may allow for the same portfolio expected return with reduced risk. These ideas have been started with Markowitz and then reinforced by other economists and mathematicians who have expressed ideas in the limitation of variance through portfolio theory. If all the asset pairs have correlations of 0—they are perfectly uncorrelated—the portfolio’s return variance is the sum over all assets of the square of the fraction held in the asset times the asset’s return teooria and the portfolio standard deviation is the square root of this sum.

For given portfolio weights and given standard deviations etoria asset returns, the case of all correlations being 1 gives the highest possible standard deviation of portfolio return. This graph shows expected return vertical versus standard deviation. This is called the ‘risk-expected tsoria space. The left boundary of this region harfy a hyperbola, [3] and the upper edge of this region is the efficient frontier in the absence of a risk-free asset sometimes called “the Markowitz bullet”.

Combinations along this upper edge represent portfolios including no holdings of the risk-free asset for which there is lowest teoira for a given level of expected return. Equivalently, a portfolio lying on the efficient frontier represents the combination offering the best possible expected jarry for given risk level. The tangent to the hyperbola at the tangency point indicates the best possible capital allocation line CAL.

Matrices are preferred for calculations of the efficient frontier. The above optimization finds the point on the frontier at which the inverse of the slope of the frontier would be q if portfolio return variance instead of standard deviation were plotted horizontally.

The frontier in its entirety is parametric on q. Harry Markowitz developed a specific procedure for solving the above problem, called the markowigz line algorithm [4] ;ortafolio, that can handle additional linear constraints, upper and lower bounds on assets, and which is proved to work with a semi-positive definite covariance matrix. Examples of implementation of the critical line algorithm exist in Visual Basic for Applications [5]in JavaScript [6] and in a few other languages.

Also, many software packages, including MATLABMicrosoft ExcelMathematica and Rprovide generic optimization routines so that using these for solving the above problem is possible, with potential caveats poor numerical accuracy, requirement of positive definiteness of the covariance matrix An alternative approach to specifying the efficient frontier is to do so parametrically on the expected portfolio return R T w. This harryy is easily solved using a Lagrange multiplier.

One key result of the above analysis is the two mutual fund theorem.

So in the absence of a risk-free asset, an investor can achieve any desired efficient portfolio even if all that is accessible is a pair of efficient mutual funds. If the location of the desired portfolio on the frontier is between the locations of the two mutual funds, both mutual funds will be held in positive quantities.


If the desired portfolio is outside the range spanned by the two mutual funds, then one of the mutual funds must be sold short held in negative quantity while the size of the investment in the other mutual fund must be greater than the amount available for investment the excess being funded by the borrowing from the other fund. The risk-free asset is the hypothetical asset that pays a risk-free rate. In practice, short-term government securities such as US treasury bills are used as a risk-free asset, because they pay a fixed rate of interest and have exceptionally low default risk.

The risk-free asset has zero variance in returns hence is risk-free ; it is also uncorrelated with any other asset by definition, since its variance is zero. As a result, when it is combined with any other asset or portfolio of assets, the change in return is linearly related to the change in risk as the proportions in the combination vary. When a risk-free asset is introduced, the half-line shown in the figure is the new efficient frontier. It is tangent to the hyperbola at the pure risky portfolio with the highest Sharpe ratio.

This efficient half-line is called the capital allocation line CALand its formula can be shown to be. In this formula P is the sub-portfolio of risky assets at the tangency with the Markowitz bullet, F is the risk-free asset, and C is a combination of portfolios P and F.

By the diagram, the introduction of the risk-free asset as a possible component of the portfolio has improved the range of risk-expected return combinations available, because everywhere except at the tangency portfolio the half-line gives a higher expected return than the hyperbola does at every possible risk level.

The fact that all points on the linear efficient locus can be achieved by a combination of holdings of the risk-free asset and the tangency portfolio is known as the one mutual fund theorem[3] where the mutual fund referred to is the tangency portfolio.

The above analysis describes optimal behavior of an individual investor. Asset pricing theory builds on this analysis in the following way. Since everyone holds the risky assets in identical proportions to each other—namely in the proportions given by the tangency portfolio—in market equilibrium the risky assets’ prices, and therefore their expected returns, will adjust so that the ratios in the tangency portfolio are the same as the ratios in which the risky assets are supplied to the market.

Thus relative supplies will equal relative demands. MPT derives the required expected return for a correctly priced asset in this context. Specific risk is the risk associated with individual assets – within a portfolio these risks can be reduced through diversification specific risks “cancel out”. Specific risk is also called diversifiable, unique, unsystematic, or idiosyncratic risk. Within the market portfolio, asset specific risk will be diversified away to the extent possible.

Systematic risk is therefore equated with the risk standard deviation of the market portfolio. Since a security will be purchased only if it improves the risk-expected return characteristics of the market portfolio, the relevant measure of the risk of a security is the risk it adds to the market portfolio, and not its risk in isolation. In this context, the volatility of the asset, and its correlation with the market portfolio, are historically observed and are therefore given.

There are several approaches to asset pricing that attempt to price assets by modelling the stochastic properties of the moments of assets’ returns – these are broadly referred to as conditional asset pricing models.

Systematic risks within one market can be managed through a strategy of using both long and short positions within one portfolio, creating a “market neutral” portfolio. Market neutral portfolios, therefore, will be uncorrelated with broader market indices.

The asset return depends on the amount paid for the asset today. The CAPM is a model that derives the theoretical required expected return i.

The CAPM is usually expressed:.

These results are used to derive the asset-appropriate discount rate. This equation can be estimated statistically using the following regression equation:. A riskier stock will have a higher beta and will be discounted at a higher rate; less sensitive stocks will have lower betas and be discounted at a lower rate. In theory, an asset is correctly priced when its observed price is the same as its value calculated using the CAPM derived discount rate.

If the observed price is higher than the valuation, then the asset is overvalued; it is undervalued for a too low price. Despite its theoretical importance, critics of MPT question whether it is an ideal investment tool, because its model of financial markets does not match the real world in many ways.


The risk, return, and correlation measures used by MPT are based on expected valueswhich means that they are mathematical statements about the future the expected value of returns is explicit in the above equations, and implicit in the definitions of variance and covariance.

In practice, investors must substitute predictions portafoli on historical measurements of asset return and volatility for these values in the equations. Very often such expected values fail to take account of new circumstances that did not exist when the historical data were generated. More fundamentally, investors are stuck with estimating key parameters from past market data because MPT attempts to model risk in terms of the likelihood of losses, but says nothing about why those losses might georia.

The risk measurements used are probabilistic in nature, not structural. This is a major difference as compared to many engineering approaches to risk management. Options theory and MPT have at least one important conceptual difference from the probabilistic risk assessment done by nuclear power [plants].

A PRA is what economists would call a structural model. The components of a system and their relationships are modeled in Monte Carlo simulations. If valve X fails, it causes a loss of back pressure on pump Y, causing a drop in flow to vessel Z, and so on. But in the Black—Scholes equation and MPT, there is no attempt to explain harrh underlying structure to price changes. Various outcomes are simply given probabilities. And, unlike the PRA, if there is no history of a particular system-level event like a liquidity crisisthere is no way to compute the odds of it.

If nuclear engineers ran risk management this way, potrafolio would never be able to compute the odds of a meltdown at a particular plant until several similar events occurred in the same reactor design. Mathematical risk measurements are also useful only to the degree that they reflect investors’ true concerns—there is no point minimizing a variable haarry nobody cares about in practice.

In particular, variance is a symmetric measure that counts abnormally high returns as just as risky as abnormally low returns. The psychological phenomenon of loss aversion is the idea that investors are more concerned about losses than gains, meaning that our intuitive concept of risk is fundamentally asymmetric in nature.

There many other risk measures like coherent risk measures might better reflect investors’ true preferences.

Modern portfolio theory has also been criticized because it assumes that returns follow a Gaussian distribution. Already in the s, Benoit Mandelbrot and Eugene Fama showed the inadequacy of this assumption and proposed the use of stable distributions instead.

Stefan Mittnik and Svetlozar Rachev presented strategies for deriving optimal portfolios in such settings. After the maekowitz market crash inthey rewarded two theoreticians, Harry Markowitz and Markowits Sharpe, who built beautifully Platonic models on a Gaussian base, contributing to what is called Modern Portfolio Theory.

Simply, if you remove their Gaussian assumptions and treat prices as scalable, you are left with hot air. The Nobel Committee could have tested the Sharpe and Markowitz models—they work like quack remedies sold on the Internet—but nobody in Stockholm seems to have thought about it. This risk is only an opportunity to buy or sell assets at attractive prices inasmuch as it suits one’s book.

Since MPT’s introduction inmany attempts have been made to improve the model, especially by using more realistic assumptions. Post-modern portfolio theory extends MPT by adopting non-normally distributed, asymmetric measures of risk. This helps with some of these problems, but not others.

TEORÍA DE PORTAFOLIO by lorena cañas on Prezi

Black-Litterman model optimization is an extension of unconstrained Markowitz optimization that incorporates relative and absolute ‘views’ on inputs of risk and returns. Modern portfolio theory is inconsistent with main axioms of rational choice theorymost notably with monotonicity axiom, stating that, if investing into portfolio X will, with probability one, return more money than investing into portfolio Ythen a rational investor should prefer X to Y.

In contrast, modern portfolio theory is based on a different axiom, called variance aversion, [14] and may recommend to invest into Y on the basis that it has lower variance. Alternatively, mean-deviation analysis [16] is a rational choice theory resulting from replacing variance by an appropriate deviation risk measure.

In the s, concepts from MPT found their way into the field of regional science. In a series of seminal works, Michael Conroy [ citation needed ] modeled the labor force in the economy using portfolio-theoretic methods to examine growth and variability in the labor force.
