Abstract

This chapter gives an overview of current research in evolutionary fi- nance. We mainly focus on the survival and stability properties of investment strategies associated with the Kelly rule. Our approach to the study of the wealth dynamics of investment strategies is inspired by Darwinian ideas on selection and mutation. The goal of this research is to develop an evolutionary framework for practical investment advice.
