In this paper we offer an alternative approach to the standard portfolio selection problem following the mean-variance approach to financial decisions under uncertainty originally proposed by de Finetti. Beside being a simple and natural way, alternative to the classical one, to derive the critical line algorithm, our approach throws new light on the efficient frontier and a clear characterization of its properties. We also address the problem with additional threshold constraints.

Abstract

In this paper we offer an alternative approach to the standard portfolio selection problem following the mean-variance approach to financial decisions under uncertainty originally proposed by de Finetti. Beside being a simple and natural way, alternative to the classical one, to derive the critical line algorithm, our approach throws new light on the efficient frontier and a clear characterization of its properties. We also address the problem with additional threshold constraints.
