Mutual fund separation in financial theory--The separating distributions
This paper finds necessary and sufficient conditions on the stochastic structure of asset returns for portfolio choice to be equivalent to choice among a limited number of mutual funds of assets, independent of investors’ preferences. This type of separation result is central to much of modern financial theory and, as a consequence, the distributions which satisfy these conditions, the separating distributions, from the underlying basis for much of this theory.
