Papers from arXiv.org
The least squares Monte Carlo algorithm has become popular for solving portfolio optimization problems. A simple approach is to approximate the value functions on a discrete grid of portfolio weights, then use control regression to generalize the discrete estimates. However, the classical global control regression can be expensive and inaccurate. To overcome this difficulty, we introduce a local control regression technique, combined with adaptive grids. We show that choosing a coarse grid for local regression can produce sufficiently accurate results.
