Abstract

The purpose of this article is to analyze and compare two standard portfolio insurance methods: Option-based Portfolio Insurance (OBPI) and Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI). Various stochastic dominance criteria up to third order are considered. We derive parameter conditions implying the second- and third-order stochastic dominance of the CPPI strategy. In particular, restrictions on the CPPI multiplier resulting from the spread between the implied volatility and the empirical volatility are analyzed.
