As a tribute to our colleague Roland Portait, Finance has decided to dedicate this special issue in his memory. Professor Portait has served for many years as the co-editor of Finance, and he has been instrumental to the development of the journal. This article is a collection of personal testimonies reflecting on Roland Portait’s career and contribution to our field. It is followed by research articles that were selected from a call for papers, released last year, on the topic of portfolio optimization – an area of research to which Professor Portait significantly contributed. Some of these articles will also appear in the next issue of Finance. Link to the article
