What Antifragility Means

‘Antifragility Revisited’ is a series of publications on the financial, physical, and socio-political concept of antifragility, invented and promoted by Professor Nicolas Nassim Taleb. Part I introduces the concept and its potentially revolutionary applications in finance. These include the identification of fragile and antifragile assets, the classification of companies by level of market fragility, the measure of critical volatilities and the construction of investment portfolios targeting long-term robustness.
