The key features of the Portfolio Optimization model include: Ease and flexibility of input, with embedded help prompts; Ability to specify the number of units held in each product or business; Specify minimum and maximum constraints for the optimised portfolio; Unique 'Maintain Current Return Level' option to ensure that return is not deteriorated at the expense of risk; and Intuitive graphical result display with Monte Carlo simulation, including probability analysis on specified 'Target' return level.
