Description
Fund models are statistical descriptions of markets where all asset returns are spanned by the returns of a lower-dimensional collection of funds, modulo orthogonal noise. Equivalently, they may be characterised as models where the global growth-optimal portfolio only involves investment in the aforementioned funds. The loss of growth due to estimation error in fund models under local frequentist estimation is determined entirely by the number of funds. Furthermore, under a general filtering framework for Bayesian estimation, the loss of growth increases as the investment universe does. A shrinkage method that targets maximal growth with the least amount of deviation is proposed. Empirical evidence suggests that shrinkage gives a stable estimate that more closely follows growth potential than an unrestricted Bayesian estimate.
