A risk-gain dominance maximization approach to enhanced index tracking (01a Articolo in rivista)

Cesarone Francesco, Lampariello Lorenzo, Sagratella Simone

Following the research strands of enhanced index tracking and of portfolio performance measures optimization, we propose to choose, among the feasible asset portfolios of a given market, the one that maximizes the geometric mean of the differences between its risk and gain and those of a suitable reference benchmark, such as the market index. This approach, which has a peculiar geometric interpretation and enjoys remarkable features, provides the efficient portfolio that dominates the largest amount of portfolios dominating the reference benchmark index. Preliminary empirical results highlight good out-of-sample performances of our approach compared with those of the market index.
