Topics include Markowitz portfolio theory and modeling; factor models for portfolio selection and risk control; the Black-Litterman model (and related Bayesian topics); utility functions; coherent risk measures; stochastic programming; and optimal execution of portfolio transactions. Emphasis is on concepts that are directly implementable. Homework and projects require considerable coding in MATLAB.
