Michaud introduced resampled efficiency as an alternative and improvement to Markowitz mean-variance efficiency. While resampled efficiency is far from becoming the standard paradigm of capital allocation amongst risky assets, it has nonetheless gained considerable ground in financial circles and become a fairly debated portfolio construction technique.
This thesis applies Michaud’s techniques to a wide array of stocks and tries to validate claims of performance superiority of resampled portfolios. While there seems to be no conclusive advantage or disadvantage of using resampling as a technique to obtain better returns, resampled portfolios do seem to offer higher stability and lower transaction costs.
