    Special Issue on Modern Portfolio Theory and Application


    Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) is a theory on how risk-averse investors can construct portfolios to optimize or maximize expected return based on a given level of market risk, emphasizing that risk is an inherent part of higher reward. According to the theory, it's possible to construct an "efficient frontier" of optimal portfolios offering the maximum possible expected return for a given level of risk.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring modern portfolio theory and application. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Risk and portfolio analysis
    • Portfolio diversification
    • Optimum portfolio
    • Market portfolio
    • Asset pricing models
    • Risk management models


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Modern Portfolio Theory and Application” should be selected during your submission.
