ABSTRACT
This paper examines several aspects regarding portfolio management. The first part of the paper looks at certainty-equivalent formulations of the portfolio problem and shows that figuring out a standard certainty-equivalent problem is the solution to getting computationally efficient solutions to a broad range of portfolio revision problems. The article also presents a special-purpose algorithm for handling portfolio revision issues in the presence of transaction costs and discusses the ability to handle several portfolio revision problems.
