Can anyone explain how constant proportion portfolio insurance works? On page 99 of Volume 6, it says that under CPPI, the target investment in stocks = m * (Portfolio Value - Floor Value), where m >1.
How can “m” be greater than 1 without eating into the floor cushion or using leverage (which is not mentioned anywhere in the text)? What am I missing?
