This paper explains the mathematics behind the model for portfolio selection presented by Boyle et al. in their 2012 paper, Keynes Meet Markowitz: The Trade-Off Between Familiarity and Diversification. First, I unpack the theoretical background of portfolio selection, as developed by Harry Markowitz and William Sharpe. Second, I explain the model proposed by Boyle et al. and also connect their work to their theoretical forefathers. Lastly, I replicate some of the results of their paper and comment on the significance of their model.
