Abstract

To limit the maximum loss of a portfolio, investment strategies can be enhanced by adding a portfolio insurance component. We have analyzed various portfolio insurance strategies – from the static stop-loss concept to option-based strategies and dynamic portfolio insurance strategies. The findings suggest that an active approach on the basis of dynamic risk forecasts is an effective alternative.
