According to Konno and Yamazaki (1991), the fact that the standard deviation efficient frontier of the MAD model does not coincide with the MEF is largely attributable to the non-normality of the returns data. MM The results of the minimax model are obtained and the corresponding risk figures are recomputed as standard deviation; in this we follow a procedure which is analogous to MAD procedure discussed above. 6. 5) is not especially meaningful since the minimax rule is not directly related to the quadratic risk term.

6 SOLUTION METHODS Whereas quadratic programs (QPs) can be solved rapidly using solution algorithms with a low order polynomial complexity, the solutions to quadratic mixed 26 Advances in Portfolio Construction and Implementation integer programs are difficult (NP-hard) and challenging. For instance consider the problem of accurately computing the discrete constraint efficient frontier (DCEF). Each point of the DCEF curve represents the global optimum solution of a ‘discrete non-convex’ optimization problem.

Risk associated with the asset i Decision variables: Let n1 : denote the negative deviation from the target level of portfolio return p1 : . . the positive deviation from the target level of portfolio return n2 : . . the negative deviation from the target risk level p2 : . . 41) i = 1, . . 37) seeks to minimize risk and maximize return by penalizing excess risk and shortfalls in return, relative to the respective targets.
