Part 1: Understanding Behaviors of Robust Portfolios
Robust portfolio optimization has been developed to resolve the high sensitivity to inputs of the Markowitz mean-variance model. The main idea is to introduce an uncertainty set for the model parameters, and to obtain the portfolio with worst-case optimization approach. Although much effort has been put into forming robust portfolios, there have not been many attempts to analyze the characteristics of portfolios formed from robust optimization. In this presentation, we discuss the recent finding on the qualitative characteristics of the robust portfolios. More specifically, there are three main questions to be addressed:
1) Is robust portfolio really robust?
2) Robust portfolio is different from traditional mean-variance portfolio. Is there any consistent pattern in regard to this qualitative difference in two portfolios?
3) If robust portfolio is consistently different from traditional mean-variance portfolio, is it possible to reduce the difference without losing the robustness?

Part 2: A Uniformly Distributed Random Portfolio
We consider a portfolio manager who picks her model parameters randomly, and analytically derive the probability distribution of the Sharpe ratio of this uniformly distributed random portfolio. This allows us to answer several questions in portfolio thoery:
1) Is 1/n portfolio superior to mean-vairance optimal portfolio?
2) Have mutual funds and hedge funds provided superior performance?
3) Is asset allocation approach better than security selection?
