Project Synopsis

The Portfolio Optimizer was developed to allow investors and financial advisors the ability to analyze the efficiency of a portfolio of mutual funds relative to stated investment objectives. The optimizer graphs the location of a portfolio against an efficient frontier and provides tools for moving the portfolio towards a point on the efficient frontier that yields maximum returns for a specified level of risk.
