Optimal portfolio with vector expected utility

Eric André

Mathematical Social Sciences, 2014, vol. 69, issue C, 50-62

Abstract: We study the optimal portfolio selected by an investor who conforms to Siniscalchi (2009)’s Vector Expected Utility’s (VEU) axioms and who is ambiguity averse. To this end, we derive a mean–variance preference generalised to ambiguity from the second-order Taylor–Young expansion of the VEU certainty equivalent. We apply this Mean–Variance Variability preference to the static two-assets portfolio problem and deduce asset allocation results which extend the mean–variance analysis to ambiguity in the VEU framework. Our criterion has attractive features: it is axiomatically well-founded and analytically tractable, it is therefore well suited for applications to asset pricing as proved by a novel analysis of the home-bias puzzle with two ambiguous assets.
