Abstract (English)

This research investigates some implications of empirically observed stochastic properties of stock returns for asset allocation problems. For that purpose, decisions of representative investors for different utility functions are compared. Actual returns are assumed to have time-dependent first and second order moments. The effects of this time-dependence are investigated by way of simulation experiments. <br>simulation, time series analysis
