Portfolio Theory and Financial Analyses
by Robert Alan Hill
Publisher: BookBoon 2010
Number of pages: 112
This book evaluates Modern Portfolio Theory for future study. From the original purpose of MPT through to asset investment by management, we learn why anybody today with the software and a reasonable financial education can model portfolios. However, computer driven models are so complex that hardly anybody understands what is going on. Returning to first principles, we learn why investors and not their computers should always interpret their results.
