We consider the problem of minimizing capital at risk in the Black-Scholes
setting. The portfolio problem is studied given the possibility that a
correlation constraint between the portfolio and a financial index is imposed.
The optimal portfolio is obtained in closed form. The effects of the
correlation constraint are explored; it turns out that this portfolio
constraint leads to a more diversified portfolio.
