In this paper, we introduce a new portfolio selection method. Our method is innovative and flexible. An explicit solution is obtained, and the selection method allows for investors with different degree of risk aversion. The portfolio selection problem is formulated as a bi-criteria optimization problem which maximizes the expected portfolio return and minimizes the maximum individual risk of the assets in the portfolio. The efficient frontier using our method is compared with various efficient frontiers in the literature and found to be superior to others in the mean-variance space.
