Robust Portfolios and Weak Incentives in Long-Run InvestmentsJun 12 2013Aug 18 2014When the planning horizon is long, and the safe asset grows indefinitely, isoelastic portfolios are nearly optimal for investors who are close to isoelastic for high wealth, and not too risk averse for low wealth. We prove this result in a general arbitrage-free, ... More
