Minimum variance frontierGraph of the lowest possible portfolio variance that is attainable for a given portfolio expected return.Minimum variance frontier Similar MatchesMean variance criterionMean variance criterionThe selection of portfolios based on the means and variances of their returns. The choice of the higher expected return portfolio for a given level of variance or the lower variance portfolio for a given expected return. 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. Minimum variance portfolioMinimum variance portfolioThe portfolio of risky assets with lowest variance. VarianceVarianceA measure of dispersion of a set of data points around their mean value. The mathematical expectation of the average squared deviations from the mean. The square root of the variance is the standard deviation. Serial covarianceSerial covarianceThe covariance between a variable and the lagged value of the variable; the same as autocorrelation.
