Variance minimization approach to trackingVariance minimization approach to trackingAn approach to bond indexing that uses historical data to estimate the variance of the tracking error. Serial covarianceSerial covarianceThe covariance between a variable and the lagged value of the variable; the same as autocorrelation. Minimum variance portfolioMinimum variance portfolioThe portfolio of risky assets with lowest variance. CovarianceCovarianceA measure of the extent to which two economic or statistical variables move up and down together. For two variables x and y with values xi, yi, i=1,…,n, the covariance is cov(x,y) = Si=1…n(xim(x))(yim(y)), where m(·) is the mean of the values in its argument.
