Multi-objective Optimal Strategy for Individual Consumption-Investment with Fuzzy Coefficients
ABSTRACT The goal of this paper is to solve an optimal consumption-investment problem with fuzzy financial coefficients. A multi-objective
fuzzy decision-making model for consumption-investment problem is proposed, based on the uncertainty in some economic factors,
to maximize the consumption utility and to maximize the total profit in investment and to minimize the risk in investment.
The fuzzy optimal consumption-investment strategy is characterized by maximizing the satisfactory grade of the decision-maker.
Finally an effective algorithm is proposed to solve the problem and a numerical example shows the effectiveness and feasibility
of this method.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, two kinds of portfolio selection models are proposed based on fuzzy probabilities and possibility distributions, respectively, rather than conventional probability distributions in Markowitz's model. Since fuzzy probabilities and possibility distributions are obtained depending on possibility grades of security data offered by experts, investment experts’ knowledge can be reflected. A numerical example of a portfolio selection problem is given to illustrate our proposed approaches.Fuzzy Sets and Systems 05/2000; DOI:10.1016/S0165-0114(98)00041-4 · 1.88 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: We develop a simple framework for analyzing a finite-horizon investor’s asset allocation problem under inflation when only nominal assets are available. The investor’s optimal investment strategy and indirect utility are given in simple closed form. Hedge demands depend on the investor’s horizon and risk aversion and on the maturities of the bonds included in the portfolio. When short positions are precluded, the optimal strategy consists of investments in cash, equity, and a single nominal bond with optimally chosen maturity. Both the optimal stock–bond mix and the optimal bond maturity depend on the investor’s horizon and risk aversion.The Journal of Finance 05/2002; 57(3):1201 - 1238.

ABSTRACT: We characterize the solution to the consumption and investment problem of a power utility investor in a continuous-time dynamically complete market with stochastic changes in the opportunity set. Under stochastic interest rates the investor optimally hedges against changes in the term structure of interest rates by investing in a coupon bond, or portfolio of bonds, with a payment schedule that equals the forward-expected (i.e. certainty equivalent) consumption pattern. Numerical experiments with two different specifications of the term structure dynamics (the Vasicek model and a three-factor non-Markovian Heath–Jarrow–Morton model) suggest that the hedge portfolio is more sensitive to the form of the term structure than to the dynamics of interest rates.Journal of Banking & Finance 08/2004; 28(8):1987-2013.
