The objectives and course content include:

  • The applications and “building blocks” of portfolio optimization
  • How to create and manage portfolio optimization problems in ARA
  • How to define and build objective functions
  • How to set and populate the universe of tradeable instruments
  • Setting limits and trading cost assumptions on individual securities
  • Global constraints applied at the whole portfolio and/or group level
  • Multi-Objective optimization, and the use of use of normalization and scaling.
