The Brown Bag Discussion
I would like to facilitate a discussion about what practitioners use to set security weights in their portfolios and how that ties with performance attribution and risk management. I'll touch on some of the pros and cons of four common methods: Screening, Stratified Sampling, Linear Programming and Optimization. The discussion will be conversational and high level, as I shy away from using formula notation.
