Optimal Multi-Currency Investment Strategies with Exact Attribution in Three Asian Countries
AbstractSinger and Karnosky's (1995) exact and complete return attribution framework does not account for risk, since it ignores accumulated historical information. Its implied investment strategy selection is based on simple return maximization and ignores that investment strategies are correlated via intra-and inter-market risks. Using simple tensor algebra we extend their exact accounting framework to include market risk measurements for n countries. The resulting n^2 x n^2 strategy risk matrix exactly decomposes into a tensor sum of the n x n fundamental market risk matrices. Since the strategy risk matrix is singular with rank = 2n-1
