Optimal Financial Portfolios via Majorization: The Static Case

We provide a novel methodology for constructing optimal portfolios of financial assets that goes beyond the standard Markowitz and CAPM settings. Under general second order stochastic dominance we point out how via majorization techniques the efficient frontier can be constructed. For the purpose we employ classical Lorenz curves and investigate their stability properties. The results provide direct industry applications.
