4) where FL is the distribution function of the losses. For the sake of completeness the , is also introduced. This risk measure is defined concept of the mean VaR, VaRmean α as the difference between VaRα and the expected return μ. If the chosen time period is 1 day, this measure is also referred to as the daily earnings at risk. 1 Incidentally, as stressed in Alexander and Baptista (2002), this sort of risk measure was advocated as early as 1963 by Baumol and was referred to as the expected gain-confidence limit criterion (see Baumol 1963).

Furthermore, it can be shown that each efficient portfolio can be generated as a linear combination of two other efficient portfolios. In particular, the risk/return profile of an efficient portfolio can be expressed in terms of a linear combination between the global minimal variance (GMV) portfolio and any other efficient portfolio. The covariance between these two portfolios equals the variance of the minimum variance portfolio. Though it might not be evident at first glance, it should be stressed that the only constraint with respect to the portfolio weights is that their sum equals one.
