Abstract

In this paper, we consider the problem of portfolio optimization. The risk will be measured by conditional variance or semivariance. It is known that the historical returns used to estimate expected ones provide poor guides to future returns. Consequently, the optimal portfolio asset weights are extremely sensitive to the return assumptions used. Getting informations about the future evolution of different asset returns, could help the investors to obtain more efficient portfolio. The solution will be reached under conditional mean estimation and prediction. This strategy allows us to take advantage from returns prediction which will be obtained by nonparametric univariate methods. Prediction step uses kernel estimation of conditional mean. Application on Chinese and American markets are presented and discussed.
