    【摘  要】 Markowitz mean-variance optimization framework is consistent with expected utility maximization under the assumption that returns are multivariate elliptically distributed or when a quadratic utility function is employed. Both assumptions are questionable. By contrast, the multivariate generalized hyperbolic distribution is known to provide an excellent …fit to returns. By extending Stein’s (1973) seminal lemma to this context we are able to completely describe the optimal portfolio of an expected utility maximizer. As a consequence, it is shown that he invests in three funds instead of two (as in mean-variance optimization).
