Portfolio selection: Markowitz’ solution

The contribution of financial models

Obiettivi

In order that students acquire the necessary set of competencies to proficiently manage the information needed to foster sound investment decisions, it is important that they are comfortable with a number of notions used in the financial sector, which make heavy use of quantitative methods. We present a few of such notions, which the practitioner in financial communication most surely will have to deal with. We shall thus put portfolio theory at the center of the course, and develop the notions necessary to have an understanding of it. These include the notions of risk and model, and in passing for example those of benchmarking, prediction, and valuation. We will not insist on mathematical formulations, but rather focus on the advantages these have and which limitations they might entail.
