The Black and Litterman model (1992) for estimating asset returns is widely used in industry and has been widely studied in the academic and professional literature. Black and Litterman offer a way to incorporate investor's views into asset-pricing. This chapter provides a description of the Black and Litterman model. The model is analyzed using fuzzy goal programming approach using appropriate membership functions. We consider a real world financial example to implement our approach.
