QUESTION: Post Modern Portfolio Theory is certainly not a new theory, but it is a theory I am reviewing again for practical applications with clients. If you are not familiar with PMPT, it builds on Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) which Harry Markowitz and Bill Sharpe won a Nobel Prize for developing.
