The intention of this post is to tie together several topics which appeared on my radar screen in the course of the trading system optimization. First, it has been understandably hard to fully rid oneself of  vestiges of the mainstream financial theory based on the postulate of market efficiency, while building a wealth-generating tool relying explicitly on demonstrable market inefficiencies. The realization that Sharpe ratio does not let one make an objective choice of a portfolio was  there from the beginning, and I recall perceiving this fact as a "necessary evil". Then came the understanding of the fact ...
Although MPT is widely used in practice in the financial industry and several of its creators won a Nobel prize for the theory, in recent years the basic assumptions of MPT have been widely challenged by fields such as behavioral economics . MPT is a mathematical formulation of the concept of diversification in investing, with the aim of selecting a collection of investment assets that has collectively lower risk than any individual asset. That this is possible can be seen intuitively because different types of assets often change in value in opposite ways. For example, when prices in the stock market fall, prices in the bond market
The Mis Behavior of Markets: A Fractal View of Risk, Ruin And ...
Mathematical superstar and inventor of fractal geometry, Benoit Mandelbrot, has spent the past forty years studying the underlying mathematics of space and natural patterns. What many of his followers don’t realize is that he has also been watching patterns of market change. In The (Mis)Behavior of Markets, Mandelbrot joins with science journalist and former Wall Street Journal editor Richard L. Hudson to reveal what a fractal view of the world of finance looks like. The result is a revolutionary reevaluation of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. Markets, we learn, are far riskier than we have wanted ... market research, surveys and trends
Learning From US Endowments? - dennisy's posterous

Risk-rated funds - Reshaping investment offerings
The debate about what impact the FSA's Retail Distribution Review (RDR) could have on investment groups has generally focused on the expectation that groups will need to launch multiple share classes for their funds (with differing charges). However, a more significant effect of the RDR could be how it might cause fund groups to reshape their investment offerings after 2012. The FSA's Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) initiative is placing an even greater emphasis on advisers to demonstrate that they have determined their clients’ attitude to risk and matched these to a portfolio with an appropriate risk profile.
