I have a non linear Sharpe ratio with 3 portfolio weights w1,w2 and w2. I want to (globally) maximize the sharpe ratio by choosing w1,w2 and w2 subject to the constraints that each of the variables is in the range of 0 to 1, and that their summation is equal to 1. I also want the maximization to start at an initial point of [w1=0.35,w2=0.6,w3=0.05].
The function is:
where stdev is the standard deviation of the portfolio ...
