Lifetime Portfolio Selection under Uncertainty: the Continuous-time Case

  title={Lifetime Portfolio Selection under Uncertainty: the Continuous-time Case},
  author={Stuart E. Dreyfus},
M OST models of portfolio selection have been one-period models. I examine the combined problem of optimal portfolio selection and consumption rules for an individual in a continuous-time model where his income is generated by returns on assets and these returns or instantaneous "growth rates" are stochastic. P . A. Samuelson has developed a similar model in discrete-time for more general probability distributions in a companion paper C81. I derive the optimality equations for a multiasset… 

Optimal Portfolio Management When Stocks Are Driven by Mean Reverting Processes

This work presented and solved the problem of portfolio optimization within the context of continuous-time stochastic model of financial variables. It has considered an investment problem of two

Time-Consistent Portfolio Management

This paper considers the portfolio management problem for an investor with finite time horizon who is allowed to consume and take out life insurance. Natural assumptions, such as different discount

Optimal portfolio approximation on finite horizons

Portfolio optimization is a well-known problem in mathematical finance concerned with selecting a portfolio which will maximize the expected terminal utility of an investor given today's information

Perturbation Analysis for Investment Portfolios Under Partial Information with Expert Opinions

The results are an extension of the partially-informed investment strategies obtained by the Black-Litterman model, wherein investors' views on upcoming performance are incorporated into the optimization along with any degree of uncertainty that the investor may have in these views.

Life-cycle Asset Allocation and Optimal Consumption Using Stochastic Linear Programming

We consider optimal consumption and (strategic) asset allocation of an investor with uncertain lifetime in the context of time-varying investment opportunities. To solve this problem we use a


We provide a computational study of the problem of optimally allocating wealth among multiple stocks and a bank account, to maximize the infinite horizon discounted utility of consumption. We


The Bayesian Markowitz problem is embedded into an auxiliary standard control problem that is characterized by a dynamic programming method and proved the existence and uniqueness of a smooth solution to the related semi-linear partial differential equation (PDE).

On the Robustness of Theoretical Asset Pricing Models

We derive a parsimonious returns-based stochastic discount factor that is robust to model misspecification. We consider a general equilibrium model with heterogeneous agents who can invest their

Optimal Investment Strategy to Maximize the Expected Utility of an Insurance Company Under the Cramer-Lundberg Dynamic

In this work, we examine the combined problem of optimal portfolio selection rules for an insurer in a continuous-time model where the surplus of an insurance company is modelled as a compound
