estimatePortReturn

Estimate mean of portfolio returns

Use the estimatePortReturn function with a Portfolio, PortfolioCVaR, or PortfolioMAD object to estimate mean of portfolio returns.

For details on the respective workflows when using these different objects, see Portfolio Object Workflow, PortfolioCVaR Object Workflow, and PortfolioMAD Object Workflow.

Syntax

pret = estimatePortReturn(obj,pwgt)

Description

example

pret = estimatePortReturn(obj,pwgt) estimates the mean of portfolio returns (as the proxy for portfolio return).

Note

Depending on whether costs have been set, the portfolio return is either gross or net portfolio returns.

Examples

Given portfolio p, use the estimatePortReturn function to estimate the mean of portfolio returns.

m = [ 0.05; 0.1; 0.12; 0.18 ];

      0 0.0119 0.0336 0.1225 ];
 
p = Portfolio;
p = setAssetMoments(p, m, C);

The function rng() resets the random number generator to produce the documented results. It is not necessary to reset the random number generator to simulate scenarios.

Given portfolio p, use the estimatePortReturn function to estimate the mean of portfolio returns.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Object for portfolio, specified using Portfolio, PortfolioCVaR, or PortfolioMAD object. For more information on creating a portfolio object, see

Collection of portfolios, specified as a NumAssets-by-NumPorts matrix, where NumAssets is the number of assets in the universe and NumPorts is the number of portfolios in the collection of portfolios.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Estimates for means of portfolio returns for each portfolio in pwgt, returned as a NumPorts vector.

pret is returned for a Portfolio, PortfolioCVaR, or PortfolioMAD input object (obj).

Tips

You can also use dot notation to estimate the mean of portfolio returns (as the proxy for portfolio return).

pret = obj.estimatePortReturn(pwgt);
