In financethe Black—Litterman model is a mathematical model for portfolio allocation developed in at Goldman Sachs by Fischer Black and Robert Htypand published in Over time we expect to enrich the information available on this site, and to continue to add links to other interesting external resources. The Bayesian expression of the model is the canonical model presented by Black and Litterman bladk,He and Litterman and Litterman et al, When you want to dig deeper into the model, papers has all the details you will need.
Black–Litterman model – Wikipedia
This table is not meant to be complete, but to be a summary of important papers on the model.
All content provided on this site is for informational blacklityerman only. A new spreadsheet which illustrates the differences between the reference models. I’ve added the readling list as a list of papers which I am reading, or have recently found which are relevant to the Black-Litterman model, or to the topic of asset allocation.
Additional Resources Resources iltterman now been moved into seperate pages for paperstheses and implementations in order to keep the front page a bit more clean. Drobetz Yes Yes One of the first papers on the canonical form not by an original author of the model.
This site provides a source of information on the Black-Litterman Model for estimating returns and covariances for input to optimization models. The user is only required to state how his assumptions about expected returns differ from the markets and to state his degree of confidence in wwww alternative assumptions.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The long term goal is to duplicate litterrman model used by Black and Litterman in their initial paper. Asset allocation is the decision faced by an investor who must choose how to blacklitteramn their portfolio across a few say six to twenty asset classes. Author’s methods provides a comparison between the actual implementations of Black-Litterman used by the various authors.

While Modern Portfolio Theory is an important theoretical advance, its application has universally encountered a problem: A new spreadsheet which illustrates the differences between the reference models.
Black—Litterman overcame this problem by not requiring the user to input estimates of expected return; instead it ory that the initial expected returns are whatever is required so that the equilibrium asset allocation is equal to what we observe in the markets. An excel spreadsheet showing the example worked in the He and Litterman paper Updated Jun 26 All content provided on this site is for informational purposes only.
For more details on the Black-Litterman Model, you might find the discussion of Tau useful as it provides some background on the confusing parameter Tau and describes how it can be used, or not depending on how littreman use the model. Here we provide a taxonomy of the models used by various authors. Allows for arbitrary distributions.
Michaud et al No Yes Provides arguments against using hybird and alternative variants of the model. For example, a globally invested pension fund must choose how much to allocate to each major country or region. In general, when there are portfolio constraints – for example, when short sales are not allowed – the easiest way to find the optimal portfolio is to use the Black—Litterman model to generate the expected returns for the assets, and then use a mean-variance optimizer to solve the constrained optimization problem.
If you just want to get to the details and write some code, this is the quickest way. This list is not complete, though I expect to continually add information to it as time is available. The information is organized historically and by expression of the model.
The model starts with the equilibrium assumption that the asset allocation of a representative agent should be proportional to the market values of the available assets, and then modifies that to take into account the ‘views’ i. At the highest level we can separate the expression of the model used into Bayesian and non-Bayesian. Replace reverse optimization and bayes formula with various optimization models. Overview This site provides a source of information on the Black-Litterman Model for estimating returns and covariances for input to optimization models.
Home What is blacklitterman. This page was last edited on 16 Februaryat Resources have now been moved into seperate pages for paperstheses and implementations in order to keep the front page a bit more clean.
There is now also an excel spreadsheet with the He and Litterman example worked. The author’s orrg section has been updated with a new taxonomy of the model, and many papers have been added.
From this, htrp Black—Litterman method computes the desired mean-variance efficient asset allocation. A new implementation of the Black-Litterman model in Excel is available on the implementations page. No means the author uses a non-Bayesian or frequentist approach to the model. The Global Equilibrium examples pull together some simple examples from the Global Equilibrium chapter of Litterman’s book.
