Create a portfolio of stocks using stock price histories downloaded from Yahoo. We create an efficient frontier for a long-only portfolio and show how to graphically display the risk-return tradeoff and the allocations. We next show how to compare frontiers created with other constraints and compare them to the original long-only frontier the R code is available on http://wp.me/pTp8L-3j

Here is my presentation 'Construction of the Modern Portfolio'. This video is meant for wholesalers at CI and internal staff. The presentation and workshop itself is best suited for IIROC-licensed advisors making the transition from 'traditional transaction-based business' to a 'fee-based practice'. The thesis behind the workshop is that we will be helping advisors shape ideology on the construction of modern portfolios. Because they may be new to fee-based, but it is not new to the industry. Incorporating all 3 strategies: beta, smart-beta, and alpha - is the new best-fit approach to creating 'efficient models'. An advisor who is cognizant of cost, while remaining product agnostic, will be the most likely to survive.
Standard asset allocation problems such as mean variance or conditional value at risk can be easily developed and solved using MATLAB® and Financial Toolbox™. Download a Trial of MATLAB: https://goo.gl/C2Y9A5 Learn More About MATLAB Financial Services Solutions: http://goo.gl/j6MNHr Other portfolio construction methods that may have a custom risk measurement or satisfy a different trading style or mandate can also be solved using MATLAB and toolboxes such as Optimization Toolbox™. Many modern investors are following a new approach called Smart Beta - finding alternative weights for indices that are not based around market capitalization. One of these approaches is risk parity, where a portfolio is constructed with each asset having equal contributions to total portfolio risk.
