Abstract

This paper is aimed at studying the optimal portfolio problem when the assets have returns from α-stable distributions. The optimal portfolio contains a riskless asset and various risky assets, including structured notes. The basic statistics of the assets are calculated and both the α-stable distribution parameters and the covariation matrix are estimated through maximum likelihood. Finally, it is shown that by including structured notes in the α-stable optimal portfolio it is obtained higher returns, lower risk and better performance than Gaussian optimal portfolio.
