Eikon Data API - Python Quants Tutorial 6 - Portfolio Theory

Speaker: Dr. Yves Hilpisch of The Python Quants                    Length: 22 Mins

It is easy to retrieve historical cross asset data using the Eikon Data API. We show how easy it is to generate statistics for single instruments and for portfolios of intruments. For an example, we use Markovitz’s seminal 1952 paper, ‘Portfolio Selection’ to analyse a portfolio of risky assets using Mean-Variance Portfolio Theory (MVP) and then we derive a minimum volatility portfolio using boundaries and constraints.
