Portfolio Selection with Higher Moments: A Polynomial Goal Programming Approach to ISE-30 Index
The aim of this paper is to propose a portfolio selection model which takes into account the investors preferences for higher return moments such as skewness and kurtosis. In the presence of skewness and kurtosis, the portfolio selection problem can be characterized with multiple conflicting and competing objective functions such as maximizing expected return and skewness, and minimizing risk and kurtosis, simultaneously. By constructing polynomial goal programming, in which investor preferences for skewness and kurtosis incorporated, a Turkish Stock Market example will be presented for the period from January 2005 to December 2010.
