On asymptotic optimality of Merton's myopic portfolio strategies under time discretization
MetadataShow full item record
This paper studies the properties of discrete-time stochastic optimal control problems associated with portfolio selection. We investigate if optimal continuous-time strategies can be used effectively for a discrete-time market after a straightforward discretization. We found that Merton's strategy approximates the performance of the optimal strategy in a discrete-time model with sufficiently small time steps.

Optimal Control Computation for Discrete Time Time-Delayed Optimal Control Problem with All-Time-Step Inequality ConstraintsLi, Bin; Teo, Kok Lay; Duan, G. (2010)In this paper, we consider a class of discrete time optimal control problems with time delay and subject to nonlinear all-time-step inequality constraints on both the state and control. By using a constraint transcription ...
