Abstract: In this article, the authors present a novel and highly flexible concept to simulate correlation matrixes of financial markets. It produces realistic outcomes regarding stylized facts of empirical correlation matrixes and requires no asset return input data. The matrix generation is based on a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm, so the authors call the approach matrix evolutions. It is suitable for parallel implementation and can be accelerated by graphics processing units and quantum-inspired algorithms. The approach is useful for backtesting, pricing, and hedging correlation-dependent investment strategies and financial products. Its potential is demonstrated in a machine learning case study for robust portfolio construction in a multi-asset universe: An explainable machine learning program links the synthetic matrixes to the portfolio volatility spread of hierarchical risk parity versus equal risk contribution.
