Paper Abstract RiskPortfolios is an R package for constructing risk-based portfolios. It provides a set of functionalities to build mean-variance, minimum variance, inverse-volatility weighted (Leote De Carvalho, Lu, and Moulin (2012)), equal-risk-contribution (Maillard, Roncalli, and Teiletche (2010)), maximum diversification (Choueifaty and Coignard (2008)), and risk-efficient (Amenc et al. (2011)) portfolios. Optimization is achieved with the R packages quadprog (Weingessel (2013)) and nloptr (Ypma (2014)). Long or gross constraints can be added to the optimizer. As risk-based portfolios are mainly based on covariances, the package also provides a large set of covariance matrix estimators.
