RiskPortfolios (Ardia et al., 2017a) is an R package for constructing risk-based portfolios dedicated to portfolio managers and quantitative analysts. It provides a set of functionalities to build mean-variance, minimum variance, inverse-volatility weighted, equal-risk-contribution, maximum diversification, and risk-efficient portfolios. As risk-based portfolios are mainly based on covariances, the package also provides a large set of covariance matrix estimators. See Ardia et al. (2017b) for details.
