The Pengana Optimiser is a mean variance optimiser that can be used as a tool when constructing portfolios. For a set of underlying assets, which may be chosen by the user, it calculates the portfolios that provide the maximum returns for a given level of risk.
Inputs required are the monthly or daily returns for the underlying assets. The weights to each underlying asset can be constrained within upper and lower bounds. The optimiser produces a frontier of efficient portfolios and demonstrates how the asset allocation varies across the frontier. Minimum risk, maximum return or maximum reward to risk portfolios can be selected from the frontier.
