Experimental Study on Optimal Portfolio Strategies under a Shortfall Constraint

Experimental Study on Optimal Portfolio Strategies under a Shortfall Constraint

We impose dynamically, a shortfall constraint in terms of Tail Conditional Expectation on the portfolio selection problem in continuous time, in order to obtain optimal strategies. The financial market is composed of n risky assets driven by geometric Brownian motion and one risk-free asset. The method of Lagrange multipliers is combined with the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation to insert the constraint into the resolution framework. The constraint is re-calculated at short intervals of time throughout the investment horizon. A numerical method is applied to obtain an approximate solution to the problem. We find that the imposition of the constraint curbs investment in the risky assets.
