Sufficient Conditions for Dominance of Simply Related Prospects

Author

  • Drynan, Ross G.

Abstract

Sufficient conditions for dominance of simply related prospects are developed for newly defined classes of limited-variation-in-risk-parameter utility functions. Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for classes of contant-risk-parameter utility functions. The latter include classes of quadratic, power and exponential utility functions. The conditions can be incorporated into easily implemented procedures for locating efficient prospects.
