"In every field of study it is possible to look back and identify a person or event that caused a major change in the direction or development of the field. In investments it is clear that the seminal work by Harry Markowitz on portfolio theory changed the field more than any other single event." Frank K. Reilly, University of Notre Dame, Indiana
Portfolio Selection: Efficient Diversification of Investmentsby Harry M. Markowitz
This is a classic book, representing the first major breakthrough in the field of modern financial theory. In effect, it created the mathematics of portfolio selection in a model which has turned out to be the indispensable building block from which the theory of the demand for risky securities is constructed. It also became an essential reference for individuals and financial institutions actually selecting optimal portfolios.
