Black–Litterman model

The author’s methods section has been updated with a new taxonomy of the model, and many papers have been added. Black—Litterman overcame this problem by not requiring the user to input estimates of expected return; instead it assumes that the initial expected returns are whatever is required so that the equilibrium asset allocation is equal to what we observe in the markets.

Provides arguments against using hybird and alternative littermab of the model. Views Read Edit View history. This site provides a source of information on the Black-Litterman Model for estimating returns and covariances for input to optimization models.

Description of the various attributes in the table Bayes – the authors use a Bayesian interpretation of the model expressing uncertainty in the prior and in their estimates.

Drobetz Yes Yes One of the first blacklittermn on the canonical form not by an original author of the model. An excel spreadsheet showing the example worked in the He and Litterman paper Updated Jun 26 Asset allocation is the blcklitterman faced by an investor who must choose how to allocate their portfolio across a few say six to twenty asset classes.


This page was last edited on 16 Februaryat For more details on the Black-Litterman Model, you might find the discussion of Tau useful as it provides some background on the confusing parameter Tau and describes how it can be used, or not depending on how you use the model.

The user is only required to state how his assumptions about expected returns differ from the markets and to state his degree of confidence in the alternative assumptions.

In financethe Black—Litterman model is a mathematical model for portfolio allocation developed in at Goldman Sachs by Fischer Black and Robert Littermanand published in Additional Resources Resources have now been moved into seperate pages for paperstheses and implementations in order to keep the front page a bit more clean. It seeks to overcome problems that institutional investors have encountered in applying modern portfolio theory in practice.

New paper focusing on Tau and if you really need it Updated 1 November Author’s methods provides a comparison between the actual implementations of Black-Litterman used by the various authors.

Michaud et al No Yes Provides arguments against using hybird and alternative variants of the model. Blacklitteran from ” https: The model starts with the equilibrium assumption that the asset allocation of a representative agent should be proportional to the market values of the available assets, and then modifies that to take into account the ‘views’ i.

Allows for arbitrary distributions. The Global Equilibrium examples pull together some simple examples from the Global Equilibrium chapter of Litterman’s book.

Black–Litterman model – Wikipedia

The Bayesian expression of the model is the canonical model presented by Black and Litterman, He and Litterman and Litterman et al, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The long term goal is to blacklitterrman the model used by Black and Litterman in their initial paper. I have some ways to go before I can work a 7 country-two asset example. An implementation of the Black-Litterman model in python and the worked example from the He and Litterman paper Updated Jun 22 Information on general topics in financial informatics can be found at financialinformatics.
