Investment problems with stochastic dominance constraints
Dorová, Bianka ; Kopa, Miloš (advisor) ; Kozmík, Václav (referee)
This thesis focuses on stochastic dominance in portfolio selection problems. The thesis recalls basic knowledge from the area of portfolio optimization with utility functions and first, second, $N$-th and infinite order of stochastic dominance. It sumarizes Post's, Kuosmanen's and Kopa's criteria for portfolio efficiency and necessary and sufficient conditions of stochastic dominance for discrete and continuous probability distributions. The thesis also contains formulations of optimization problems with second order stochastic dominance constraints derived for discrete and continuous probability distributions. A practical application is also a part of the thesis, where the optimization problems for monthly returns of Czech stocks are solved using optimization software GAMS.
Kelly criterion in portfolio selection problems
Dorová, Bianka ; Kopa, Miloš (advisor) ; Omelka, Marek (referee)
In the present work we study portfolio optimization problems. Introduction is followed by chapter 2, where we introduce the concept of utility function and its relationship to the investor's risk attitude. To solve the optimization problem we consider the Markowitz portfolio optimization model and the Kelly criterion, which are recalled in the fourth and fifth chapter. The work also contains an extensive numerical study. Using the optimization software GAMS we solve portfolio optimization problems. We consider a portfolio problem with (and without) allowed short sales. We compare the obtained portfolios and we discuss whether Kelly optimal portfolio is a special case of the Markowitz optimal portfolio for the special value of the minimum expected return.
