Abstract

Mean variance analysis has long been utilized as a tool for portfolio construction. In this paper we see how it can also be used for exploring the diverse asset classes represented by exchange traded funds and notes. Mid-cap stocks and mortgage-backed bonds may offer under exploited investment opportunities.We will also see how a timing overlay can add considerable value in constructing efficient portfolios of exchange traded funds and notes.

Keywords: mean variance analysis, optimal portfolio, strategic asset allocation, market timing
