7 displays the discrete efficient frontiers for model CARD. The two discrete frontiers were constructed by solving 100 optimization problems with varying levels of return ρ and in each instance the optimal solution was found. Each of the two DCEFs contain discontinuities; also these discrete frontiers are completely dominated by the continuous MV efficient frontier. In Jobst et al. (2001), we also discuss the missing portion of the DCEF and provide a fuller discussion of these and related issues.

5. According to Konno and Yamazaki (1991), the fact that the standard deviation efficient frontier of the MAD model does not coincide with the MEF is largely attributable to the non-normality of the returns data. MM The results of the minimax model are obtained and the corresponding risk figures are recomputed as standard deviation; in this we follow a procedure which is analogous to MAD procedure discussed above. 6. 5) is not especially meaningful since the minimax rule is not directly related to the quadratic risk term.

The disadvantage of the approach is that if we use ranked mean and ranked variance in the search for robustness, it throws away some of the information available in the conventional analysis. However our GMV approach allows use of a mix of a ranked mean and a conventional variance to construct portfolios, or indeed other combinations, Continued on page 41 Generalized mean-variance analysis and robust portfolio diversification 41 Continued from page 40 so that the trade off between efficiency and robustness can be varied to fit the circumstances.
