INTRODUCTION

• Many situations involve the necessity to choose repeatedly between a given set of options. • In the real world, decisions must be made in a sequential (discrete or continuous) manner over time. • Earlier decisions may affect the outcome, feasibility, and performance of a later decision. • These decisions may be based on past data, the history and behaviour of the situation, as well as certain assumptions that are made to simplify a complex problem. • To facilitate these decisions, optimization models from mathematics are applied.

"The subject of optimization is a fascinating blend of heuristics and rigour.“ Roger Fletcher 1987 What is optimization and why is it needed? In mathematics. or mathematical programming. optimization. of theory and experiment. refers to choosing the best element from some set of available alternatives. Bad decisions cost time and money. computer science and economics. .

What is Linear Programming? • Linear programming is a structured procedure that incorporates defined decision variables that are significant in determining the maximizing or minimizing of an objective function. • The optimal solution can be found using numerous mathematical algorithms. • It is subject to linear equality and linear inequality constraints. .

most companies would like to maximize profits or minimize costs with limited resources. Although the modern management issues are ever-changing. Certain special cases of linear programming. such as network flow problems and multicommodity flow problems are considered important enough to have generated much research on specialized algorithms for their solution. Historically. It was kept secret until 1947. Postwar. decomposition. Many practical problems in operations research can be expressed as linear programming problems. such as duality. many issues can be characterized as linear programming problems. Therefore. many industries found its use in their daily planning. • • • • • .History of LP • Arose as a mathematical model developed during World War II to plan expenditures and returns in order to reduce costs to the army and increase losses to the enemy. ideas from linear programming have inspired many of the central concepts of optimization theory. and the importance of convexity and its generalizations.

• Mathematics helps establish models which are to be used to analyze and implement optimal decisionmaking .• Finance is the science of management of money. • A financial instrument is either cash or an evidence of an ownership interest in an entity • Cash instruments are financial instruments whose value is determined directly by markets • Derivative instruments are financial instruments which derive their value from the value and characteristics of one or more underlying assets.

involves applying robust mathematical optimization techniques to solve financial problems. • We limit our approach to one such method known as linear programming .OPTIMIZATION MODELS IN FINANCE • Optimization models in finance.

. but not the obligation.An options Problem • What is an option? a financial instrument that conveys the right. on some underlying security or on a parcel of real property). to engage in a future transaction (for example. or in a futures contract • What is a bond? A bond is a formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at fixed intervals.

The Options problem • You have $20000 to invest. A option to buy a share of stock XYZ at $15 exactly six months from today sells for $10.the price remains the same .the price goes upto $40 or drops to $12 Each scenario is equally likely . You have decided to limit the number of call options bought and sold to 5000. A 6-month riskless zero coupon bond sells for with $100 face value sells for $90. You consider three scenarios for the price of stock Y six months from today: . Stock Y sells at $20 per share today.

Portfolio optimization: process of changing the set of financial instruments held to meet various criteria. - . Government Securities: Governments usually borrow by issuing securities.

The goal for the mortgage team is to allocate the money to the categories so as to: a) Maximize the average return per dollar b) Have an average risk of no more than 5(all averages and fractions taken over the invested money(not over the saving account)) c) Invest at least 20% in commercial loans d) The amount in second mortgages and personal loans combined should be no higher than the amount in first mortgages.

and a cash outflow of 1/5(5) = $1 million would be required at time 1. Assume that any funds left over at time 0 cannot be used at time 1. The cash outflows and net present values (in millions of dollars) are given in Table 1. The one-fifth share of investment 3 would yield an NPV of 1/5(16) = $3. You have $40 million available for investment now (time 0). Formulate an LP that will help achieve this goal.The NET present value problem You are considering five different investment opportunities.

For example. then a cash outflow of 1/5(5) = $1 million would be required at time 0. You may purchase any fraction of each investment. You want to maximize the NPV that can be obtained by investing in investments 1–5.

2. 5) Your goal is to maximize the NPV earned from investments. (NPV earned from investment 5). Note that NPV from investment 1 = (NPV from investment 1)(fraction of investment 1 purchased) =13x1 Applying analogous reasoning to investments 2–5 shows that you want to maximize z = 13x1 + 16x2 + 16x3+ 14x4+ 39x5 Your constraints may be expressed as follows: Constraint 1 You cannot invest more than $40 million at time 0. Then Constraint 1 reduces to 11x1 + 53x2 + 5x3 +5x4 +29x5< = 40 Constraint 2 reduces to 3x1 +6x2 +5x3 +x4 +34x5<= 20 Constraints 3–7 may be represented by xi <=1 . 3.

• LP requires that the model to be optimized contains data that are perfectly forecast able • Linearity Condition: algorithms will not produce optimality for non-linear problems • Model complexity increases computational time and time is money in Finance ie..NPV model • Tax rate changes are non-linear • There are no readymade algorithms to reduce problem size other than heuristics .

. Linear Programming helps reduce redundancy. • Most commercial optimization software have in-built linear programming algorithm • LINGO.• Linear Programming is an excellent way of solving linear financial problems • Computation time can be greatly reduced if redundant information is kept out from the model • Linear Programming can be extended to other fields as well: Integer Programming and Mixed Integer Programming. SAS and MATLAB can be used to solve such problems • In conclusion.
