Presentation :

The results obtained using Monte Carlo analysis show that investors should allocate between 45% and 63% of their portfolio to such portfolio insurance strategies. Moreover, the inclusion of portfolio insurance strategies leads to important utility gains. Our results are robust with respect to the choice of the objective, the presence of realistic levels of market friction, heterogeneous expectations on volatility, and various parametric assumptions.
