A note on calculating the optimal risky portfolio


Given a number of risky assets and a riskless asset, the set of efficient portfolios in the mean-variance optimization sense are combinations of the riskless asset and a unique optimal risky portfolio. This note shows how a simple modification of Markowitz’ method of critical lines can be used to determine the optimal risky portfolio in a faster, more reliable, and more memory-efficient way than the standard approaches.
