In these working notes, we introduce the concept of the diversification potential, which expresses the maximum diversification premium available by rebalancing to fixed target weights for a collection of assets. We distinguish between two forms of diversification potential: the unconstrained (which allows portfolios with short positions) and the constrained (which only permits long-only portfolios).

Keywords: portfolio management; diversification; stochastic portfolio theory; excess growth rate
