Abstract

We investigate the use of Bregman iteration method for the solution of the portfolio selection problem, both in the single and in the multi-period case. Our starting point is the classical Markowitz mean-variance model, properly extended to deal with the multi-period case. The constrained optimization problem at the core of the model is typically ill-conditioned, due to correlation between assets. We consider l1-regularization techniques to stabilize the solution process, since this has also relevant financial interpretations.
