A robust bayesian approach to portfolio selection

Passarin, Katia ; Ronchetti, Elvezio (Dir.) ; Trojani, Fabio (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2004.

This thesis aims at studying the local robustness properties of Bayesian posterior summaries and deriving a robust procedure to estimate Bayesian Mean-Variance weights in a portfolio selection problem. In the first part, we study the local robustness of Bayesian estimators. In particular, we build a framework wherein any Bayesian quantity can be seen as a posterior functional. In this way it...
