This study investigates the use of dynamic programming methods for portfolio optimization in the context of financial management, with a focus on the Tabulation approach. Portfolio optimization, a critical step in investment decision-making, entails selecting the best combination of assets to maximize returns while minimizing risk. Using dynamic programming methods, they present a systematic way to efficiently solve portfolio optimization problems by dividing them down into smaller, more manageable subproblems and applying the optimality principle. This paper analyzes the efficacy and relevance of dynamic programming algorithms in revolutionising financial management techniques by combining theoretical ideas, empirical research, and practical implementations. They cover the theoretical basis of dynamic programming algorithms and their application to portfolio optimization, emphasizing the important principles and approaches. Furthermore, they provide real-world case studies and empirical analyses to show how dynamic programming methods, particularly when combined with the Tabulation method, can improve portfolio performance, reduce risks, and achieve strategic investment goals. By throwing light on this dynamic junction of theory and practice, the research helps to advance knowledge and understanding in the field of financial management. They offer useful insights to financial practitioners, researchers, and policymakers alike, enabling them to use dynamic programming algorithms to optimize investment portfolios and drive financial innovation in an increasingly complicated and dynamic economic landscape.
