Abstract: Abstract This paper provides results in the area of the analytical derivation of the efficient set of a mean-variance portfolio selection problem that has more than three criteria. By “analytical” we mean derived by formula as opposed to being computed by algorithm. By “more than three criteria”, we mean that beyond the mean and variance of regular portfolio selection, the problems addressed have two or more additional linear objectives. The additional objectives might include sustainability, dividend yield, liquidity, and R&D as extra objectives like these are being seen with greater frequency. While not all multiple criteria portfolio selection problems lend themselves to an analytical derivation, a certain class does and the problems in this class are covered by the mathematics of this paper.
