What is the Black Litterman Model and How Can You Use It? - MarketXLS

What is the Black Litterman Model?

The Black Litterman Model is a risk-adjusted return optimization tool and asset allocation decision support system developed by Fischer Black and Robert Litterman in the early 1990s. It is considered a “polyhedral process” for portfolio optimization and provides insight into portfolio selection, risk management, and investment decisions. This model is based on the Mean-Variance Optimization technique and Mean-Variance Portfolio Theory but incorporates several additional features such as Bayesian Estimation and Expectations-Based Modeling to provide more robust and accurate portfolio optimization.

How Can You Use It?

The Black Litterman Model can be used for portfolio optimization, risk management, asset allocation, and return optimization. The core of the model is based on the concept of Equilibrium Prices for each risk factor, which are influenced by investors’ opinion, sentiment and risk appetite, rather than just relying on historical returns and past data. The model also leverages a novel Bayesian estimation technique to create a fully integrated “expectations-based” approach to portfolio optimization and investment decision making, allowing you to take into account the investors’ outlook and current market conditions.

One of the major advantages of the Black Litterman model is its ability to incorporate both subjective views and objective data while simultaneously minimizing risk, ensuring that allocations adhere to the investors’ risk preferences. This can significantly improve the overall performance of a given portfolio and provide greater insights into the risk-reward profile of investments.

The Black Litterman Model can be used to evaluate and allocate both actively managed and passively managed portfolios, as well as providing insight into mitigation strategies for potential investment risks.
