This paper describes the algorithm's engineering of a covariance matrix self-adaptation evolution strategy (CMSA-ES) for solving a mixed linear/nonlinear constrained optimization problem arising in portfolio optimization. While the feasible solution space is defined by the (probabilistic) simplex, the nonlinearity comes in by a cardinality constraint bounding the number of linear inequalities violated. This gives rise to a nonconvex optimization problem. The design is based on the CMSA-ES and relies on three specific techniques to fulfill the different constraints. The resulting algorithm is then thoroughly tested on a data set derived from time series data of the Dow Jones Index.
