Portfolio Analysis

William Sharpe

Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, 1967, vol. 2, issue 2, 76-84

Abstract: Someone has said that maternity is a matter of fact, while paternity is, at best, a matter of opinion. Concerning the field to which this issue of the Journal is devoted, however, there is little difference of opinion — Harry Markowitz is almost universally considered to be the father of portfolio analysis. The essence of the theory appeared in his 1952 article, although the full exposition was not available until several years later.
